Out with the old...

Had a late night last night, as we were at a "Malanka" celebration, held this year a week later than normal for some reason. Thinking about it a bit though, it's timely as the origin's of Malanka are: An ancient ceremony, Malanka is the celebration of Malanka's liberation from the Evil One and is a symbol of spring liberated from the grip of winter on New Year's day. All appeal with good deeds and wishes for a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

It was great fun in any case, I haven't been to one in almost a decade, but this year my youngest daughter was in the local Ukrainian dancers and was dancing at the celebration.
