On April 4, 2018 the all-university cultural event "Preparing for Easter" was held in which our creative team took part. There is a holiday in the life of every person which is waited for, to which you prepare carefully and which not only beautifies our everyday life, but also gives good mood, joy and happiness. For a Christian such a holiday is Easter. Christ is risen! These are the words from which a soul feels light and joy!
The event was opened by the Head of Ukrainian Literature Department Oleinik Natalia Petrovna and the head of "Oberig" studio Natalia Mikhailovna Scherbak. Embroidered towels, napkins, paper patterns, embroidered pictures with sophisticated taste and creative design attracted the guests' attention. In addition to items of needlework, samples of Petrikivka painting were presented by a master, member of the National Union of Ukrainian Artists Panko Valentina Fedorovna.
The guests got acquainted with the book exposition from the collections of the scientific library: "Holidays, Rituals and Traditions." The staff of the reading room of social and human sciences professionally presented book treasures on the following subjects:
"Happy Easter! Celebrate your health!"
"This priceless treasure - a little pysanka."
"Rainbow colours of Petrikivka painting".
The book exhibition reveals a rich world of Ukrainian traditions, rituals, customs and beliefs, which formed for centuries in the history of the Ukrainian people and are gaining popularity again in the modern historical stage. The greatest attention was paid to the books by Julia Datchenko - "The World of the Ukrainian Easter eggs", "Katerinoslav Easter Eggs" and "The Guide to Easter Egg Painting".
