Those of the Orthodox faith are celebrating Christmas today
Many people in the area are celebrating Christmas again today.
Those of the Orthodox faith are celebrating the birth of Christ today in accordance with the Julian calendar.
Phyllis Tarapacki is just one of those celebrating today. She says that keeping the traditions alive is an important aspect, and that it's important to share her traditions, as many elements of the Ukranian culture are becoming lost over time.
She plans to share the day with others, by visiting the Vegreville Hospital to sing Ukranian Christmas carols.
