Vyshyvanka Day is celebrated on the third Thursday of May

Google web designers have created a new Doodle in honor of the Vyshyvanka Day (Day of Embroidery), which falls on May 21. The picture shows a girl in an embroidered shirt.

Vyshyvanka Day was invented relatively recently (in 2006), and at first, its scale was limited to a single university: Chernivtsi National University. Now it is celebrated not only in Ukraine, but also in many other countries around the world.

The purpose of the holiday is to preserve and popularize folk traditions of creating and wearing embroidered Ukrainian clothes. It does not have any obligatory requirements, except for putting on the vyshyvanka. However, annually the number of events timed to this day is growing.

Unfortunately, this year it will not be marked on a large scale due to the lockdown restrictions.

As we reported earlier, on May 20, Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers extended the lockdown until June 22.

It was also decided to begin the second phase of quarantine easing starting from May 22: urban, suburban and intra-regional public transport will be resumed in Ukraine.
