"The Carol of Bells", based on the tune by Mykola Leontovich, is re-chanted in more than 150 variations. Ukrainian "Shchedryk" gives the Christmas spirit around the world. This is the spirit of hope, kindness, expectation of a miracle and incredible unity that prevails at the table when the family gathers for the Holy Supper," the President wrote.
