8 Березня у нашій сім’ї (The Eighth of March in Our Family)


It’s a tradition of our family to celebrate the 8th of March as Mother’s Day. This day is a day off in Ukraine. So Father and Mother stay at home and we have a good time. On the eve of the 8th of March Father and I go to the department store to choose presents for Mother. Then we cleaned the flat.

In the morning of the day Father goes to the market to buy flowers for Mum and Grannies. Then Father cooks the holiday breakfast. And I lay the table. When Mum comes into the kitchen everything is ready and we sit at the table.

After breakfast we usually go for a walk. It’s also a tradition of our family to go to the Dnieper hills. The views from the observation grounds are so beautiful that I always feel proud for being a Kyivite.
