November 9 – Day of Ukrainian writing and language
November 9, since 1997, Ukrainians traditionally celebrate the Day of Ukrainian Writing and Language. This annual holiday is intended to support the Ukrainian language, attract Ukrainians to study, improve and popularize it. Without a native language, no man can fully feel part of his own people, his history and culture. Language is a great value of the people. I congratulate everyone who is involved in the development of Ukrainian writing and language. Happiness in all your worthy endeavors.
