Overview of festivals and celebrations in Ukraine
The April Palm Week, ending on Palm Sunday, relates to the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. On Saturday and Sunday, according to the old custom, many Ukrainians beat each other with pussy willow branches to cure diseases and expel evil spirits. In the beginning of May, Ukrainians have a lot of time-out because of the large number of holidays. The first of May is Labor Day. Till the 19th century, spring was celebrated on this day, and from Soviet times, peaceful demonstrations of workers are held on May 1st. May 9th is one of the most important holidays, marking the USSR Victory Day over the Nazis, the end of the war. Parades, meetings with veterans, and special demonstrations are held throughout the country. Old and new war films are broadcasted on television too.
