12 dishes

I love ukrainian Christmas food..... yes there should be no meat or dairy (sometimes we cheat), but all the food is still very tasty and filling
I will try and list the dishes in order
1. Kutia ( boiled wheat and poppy seed with honey and sugar, sometimes nuts) It's very sweet
2. Borscht ( beet soup) Very hearty
3. Kolach( Festive braided bread)
4. Pyrohy ( dumplings with potato, cabbage, mushrooms etc)
5. Holubtsi ( cabbage rolls)
6. Fish ( it doesn't have to be jellied fish, could be baked) Also you must have hearing!!
7. Beans ( my family eats them mashed with tons of garlic..... very tasty)
8. Uzvar ( a compote drink with preserved fruit)
9.Pampushky ( those donuts filled with poppy seeds or prunes or cherries)
10. Hrustyky ( another fried dessert with icing sugar)
11. Beets
12 Sour cabbage
Many things have been added to this list, or substituted. But the top 6 things are always on the list!!
Have fun trying to impress your bf!! It's alot of work

Re: 12 dishes

Laryska,

Further these 12 dishes refer to the 12 apostles of Jesus Christ also when we set the table - we always put on the table a plate more - this plate is for the unexpected guest.

Laryska, Hanja, Divchyna, Capa,
All your nice comments made me even more aware of how much close relatives we Polyaks are to Ukrainians.
Jellied Carp is just mandatory at our Vilya, together with many other, preferably 12, dishes. Good old times, they come again here!
Greetings.

Girls, could you quote some carols also? (in Ukrainian!)

A few hours later...
ad.4 Mushrooms for the filling should be preferably the wild ones because they have very special taste! The best are dried up, minced boletuses. They taste good with sauerkraut.
Laryska (GREETINGS), I have a question about the item no. 10
Hrustyky, is it a special cake made by placing a finely shaped dough pieces in a pan with hot plant oil? This dish is delicate, crusty and wonderful, we call it khrusty(favorky). I add some potato slices during the frying process to limit the oil temperature.
Item 6. I know a special method of making the jelly totally transparent and clean-looking.
Do you use poppy-seed for some Xmas dishes (a filling for pierogi or other dumplings and maybe for some kinds of cakes? I like it very much.

The Christmas tree is not integral to Ukrainian tradition. It's something that developed in the late 18th century w/the German-Russian immigrant/colonists and their concept of Tennenbaum. Ukraine was agrarian/pagan rooted and what is more traditional is to have a fat sheaf of wheat wrapped in a red bow, standing somewhere near the entranceway of the home. This is called a DEEDUKH.

PS>I am seriously partial to the marinated herring served w/kwas bread. In the UK there are stores that cater to the Slavic communities and provide ethnically specific foods for purchase during the holidays.

Correct, Hannia. I met this kind of Xmas arrangement during my visit to the Galician Skansen in Sanok (Western Galicia in PL). This skansen is really an interesting place providing much knowledge on Boyko and Lemko popular culture.
In PL, there were also another arrangements called pajaki (spiders) because of their shapes.
