Ukrainian carols to help ring in Christmas

Organisers of the Ukrainian Christmas Carol Celebration are getting ready to celebrate with the community, hosting one of five events funded through this year’s Glenorchy City Council Christmas Carols grant program.

The Ukrainian event will take place on 17 December.

“The lead up to Christmas Day is known as one of the most significant times of year in Ukraine, and we are expecting our Glenorchy celebration to be reminiscent of home for many residents,” Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said.

“The Glenorchy municipality has a diverse cultural makeup, and these events show how valuable it is to embrace culture, history and community.”

The newly reformed Ukrainian Choir will lead the event, singing carols in both English and Ukrainian, while the Association will host a morning tea, gingerbread house decorating and a visit from Saint Nicholas himself.

The Association of Ukrainians in Tasmania supports newly arrived Ukrainians and the larger Ukrainian community impacted by the war in Ukraine by organising community gatherings and celebrations of significant cultural occasions.

“This will be the Association’s second year hosting a Christmas event in Glenorchy and we anticipate it will be bigger and better than last year,” Mayor Thomas said.

The event will be held at the Ukrainian Hall (185 Main Road Moonah) from 11am- 2pm. The event is free but RSVPs are appreciated for planning purposes. For more information on this and other events go to www.gcc.tas.gov.au or phone 6216 6800.
