Halloween vs Day Of The Dead

If you’ve ever wondered just what the differences are between Halloween vs Day of the Dead, don’t worry! Tons of people have asked exactly that. To be honest, as someone who spent my life in the middle of Generic Small Town, USA, I was one of them.  I can say that while I knew there WAS a difference, I couldn’t have told you what that was exactly.

Until the middle of college, my only experience with Dia de los Muertos was a Spanish teacher groaning every time I messed up the pronunciation. I was a kid raised on Halloween. Candy, costumes, pumpkins, and scary movies! So if you’d like to know a little bit more to better understand Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, look no further. Here are some of the most popular questions I could find put together for you in one handy blog!

How to Celebrate Independence Day in Ukraine

Independence Day in Ukraine

On August 24th the bright blue and yellow colors of the Ukrainian flag will decorate the streets of all cities big and small across Ukraine. Also known as ‘День незалежності України’ (Den’ Nezalezhnosty Ukrainy’), this holiday is officially called Ukraine’s Independence Day. A very important national holiday, it commemorates Ukrainian Independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

To this day, Independence Day in Ukraine is celebrated with great pomp. Ukrainians have always had their own culture and language, but for centuries were dominated by Russia, Poland, Turkey and other countries. Because of this, the holiday carries extra significance, allowing Ukrainians to express their love for a country ruled by and for them. The day has come to remember the heroes of Ukraine’s past and honor those who fought for their nation’s freedom.
