Mmmmm, Ukrainian Christmas dinner. My mom's mom's mom was Ukrainian, so my grandmother used to always make Ukrainian Xmas meals. I even remember those kind of plates - were your baba's sort of octagon-shaped too?

I used to love Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner, too. My mom still makes traditional Xmas Eve dinner (but now does it on Dec 24th) - the communion wafer, the wheat & honey, the fish dishes, and the pyrogies...no meat, of course. I have to get on the ball and learn to make that stuff for this year, as we're going to be spending Christmas at home. I only have a very little bit of Ukrainian in me, but my husband is Ukrainian, and I'd like to continue the tradition for my daughters.
