Ukraine Celebrates Vyshyvanka Day

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Today, on the third Thursday of May, Ukrainians traditionally celebrate Vyshyvanka Day, the day of the national embroidered shirt.

The third Thursday of May was chosen not by chance. The founders of this holiday insist that the Day of the Ukrainian embroidered shirt falls on a weekday and not on a weekend, emphasizing that the embroidered shirt is a component of the life and culture of Ukrainians, and not an ancient artifact.
