Malanka (Ukrainian New Year’s Eve) is celebrated every January on the 13th, according to the Julian calendar. Malanka 2018 will be held on Saturday, January 13, 2018.

It is rich in ancient ritual, folklore and magic. The ancestors of Ukrainians believed that on New Year’s Eve, good and evil spirits descended on the earth. In order to ward off the evil forces and ensure a bountiful new year, the night was spent in dancing, partaking of a lavish and ritualistic meal, fortune telling, courting, casting of spells and singing carols of well wishes called Shchedrivky.

We may not believe in the old myths, or carry on ancient traditions, but what better way to bring in a new year than to celebrate with excellent food, exceptional entertainment in the company of close friends and legendary Ukrainian hospitality.
