Saint Michael’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church

Ukrainian Pysanky

This year pysanky are very special. They are created by talented Marianne Brigidear in order to support Ukraine. Marianne is a parishioner of St. Michael’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which actively fundraises for Ukraine. Each pysanka is sold at a price of $25. Those $25 will bring blue peaceful skies to the Ukrainian people.
Pysanky are sold at the newly opened Euro Deli Kiev (425 Victoria Ave.E, unit 5).


What is Pysanka?
It is an egg created by the written-wax basic method utilizing traditional folk motifs and designs. Pysanky were thought to protect households from evil spirits, catastrophe, lightning and fires. The dyes used to decorate pysanky also had symbolic meaning. Red – symbolized the sun, life, and joy; yellow stood for wealth and fertility; green was the symbol of spring and plant life.
Aren’t they beautiful? Which one do you like best?
