This is my favorite Christmas song:

Carol of the Bells (by Ray Conniff Singers).

What a coincidence, Panos!  I was just about to post the original of your favorite!  The original lyrics, as explained in the history of Carol of the Bells at The Unknown Ukrainian Carol that everyone knows, "speak about a swallow that flew into a master’s household and started twittering to him about the increase of his livestock.".

My compilation of “Schedryk”, interspersed with images of traditional Ukrainian food created in 2010:  Ukrainian Christmas.

What do you fill the Vareniki with?

Our Church has a periogi making event in November to sell mashed potato and cheese filled perogi at the Christmas bazaar.

My favorite Vareniki (or varenyky) is potato/cheese, with sauteed onions and, of course, sour cream.  My mother-in-law used to get fresh "farmer's cheese" (rather like a dry cottage cheese) from a local farm.  If that wasn't available, she used cream cheese.  I've never had vareniki as good as hers -- or course she learned from her mother in Ukraine and was amazing to watch making them.  She also made them with a sauerkraut filling and for Christmas there were a few with a poppy seed filling to float one in the borscht.  They can also be made with fruit filling although she never did that.  Traditionally, the 12 courses served Christmas Eve are meatless, although we didn't strictly stick to that.  (The recipe for her walnut torte is a family secret.  There is no flour in it but it takes a dozen eggs!)

I too like Carol of the Bells, this is by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra choreographed with a Christmas light show (created by: Tom BetGeorge.)
Less traditional.

Techie, this is the instrumental version of Carol of the Bells used in the movie Nightmare before Christmas. It has something ... scaring in it. :)
