“And this is the photo of the salad we often eat,” my virtual exchange student from Ukraine told our little group today.  “We don’t usually eat cookies at Christmas.” 

For almost thirty minutes, she explained her country’s traditions surrounding December 19th’s “Saint Nikolas Day”, Catholic Christmas on the 25th and the Orthodox Christmas on the January 7th
