A brief annotation Christmas and New Year are the holidays celebrated by many nations. The original pre-Christian way of celebration of the New Year is well kept in the traditions and rituals of the Ukrainians on January, 13-14. Unlike Christmas and Epiphany, these days were not so great important in the religious calendar, so there are almost no ecclesiastical motifs in their rituals.
