What do you do?

Whether you are Ukrainian from over there, or a long time North American of Ukrainian ancestry, or somehow attached to the entire Ukrainian thing, this is the place for you.

So how do you keep a touch of that ethnic thing while living in North America (or wherever you may be?).  Besides the big things like language, culture, pyrogies or cabbage rolls or other food, clothing, songs, dance, embroidery, weaving, ceramics, politics, economics, agrarian practices, spirituality, folk art, sculpture, tragedies, wars, Chernobyl, regional issues, braids, .....well,   you get it, there must be some small, less exhausting stuff, so what do you do?

Symbols mean a lot to me, so I have a sunflower plate on my coffee table - it's a start.
