The family of the President of Ukraine is always looking forward to Christmas holidays. The wife of President Kateryna Yushchenko said this in the interview with Facty newspaper. At the same time she noted that Christmas in Yushchenko’s family is first of all a religious holiday.
“I do everything possible in order this holiday not to be lost in turmoil of New Year trees, fires and gifts. Our girls have already read some books of Bibles for children and they also know many prayers. Taras (the presidential junior son – editor.) also knows some prayers. My children go to a church, visit Sunday classes, we read Bible and pray together”, Kateryna Yushchenko commented on religious upbringing of children in their family, news agency UNIAN cites the official web site of the presidential candidate Victor Yushchenko reports.
Kateryna Yushchenko said that she enjoys preparing the house for winter holidays. Speaking about gifts, the First lady of the country said that she prefers practical gifts and her husband prefers romantic gifts.
Kateryna Yushchenko said that Sophia wants a guitar and Taras wants a hamster for Christmas holidays. At the same time the first lady said that it is rather difficult to find a gift for Hrystyna. “She wants the things, which she has seen in her dreams and fantasies. Once she asked for a crystal bullet, she saw the similar one in a fairy-tale book. This year Hrystyna wants a toy dolphin, but it has to be “like real one”. I think that we will buy books about dolphins”, said Kateryna Yushchenko.
