President Abraham Lincoln wishes everyone a Happy Vyshyvanka Day!
The purpose of this holiday is to preserve and popularize Ukraine's folk traditions. The tradition to mark the day of Ukrainian national embroidered clothes, vyshyvanka, was established relatively recently but has already spread around the world. On this day you can usually see people dressed in embroidered clothes on the street, in transport, at work, schools, etc. Vyshyvanka Day does not have any obligatory requirements, except for putting your vyshyvanka on.
So, quarantining or not, why don't you take yours out of the closet and wear it today? Taking pictures and sharing them with friends is highly encouraged! Enjoy seeing beautiful, colorful vyshyvankas!
