Daria Sharafan, 15, Rivne

I’d like to describe you an amazing evening on December 13. On this day, the Ukrainians celebrate one of the most important religious holidays: St. Andrew’s Day. This holiday has a few traditions: unmarried girls tell fortunes on their future husbands, and the Ukrainian women make varenyks with surprises inside. Yesterday afternoon I was with my family. My mother prepared dishes of Ukrainian national cuisine for supper, necessarily including varenyks. What about the surprises inside varenyks? My mom put notes in some varenyks: a car, success, a new flat, strong health and so on. I found two notes inside my varenyks: happiness and strong health. I hope that it will come true in the coming year! Maybe it was the best supper in my life!
