For the grown-ups Christmas is also the most beloved festival. It lasts for three days. On Christmas Eve, (Sviat Vechir) the family gathers around a table for a holy supper of twelve symbolic dishes. The supper begins when the first star appears in the sky. By the light of a beeswax candle a carol is sung, the kutia is served and everyone takes a spoonful. The meal is meat- and milk-free. The menu includes beans, fish, varenyky, mushrooms and desserts made from dried fruit and honey.
