July came into its own, which means that everyone will celebrate one of the most interesting holidays of the year - the day of Ivan Kupala. We will tell you when and how the holiday of Ivan Kupala is celebrated in 2017, what is entertaining to tell the children about this day, how to have fun and what traditions to follow.

Once, when our ancestors lived in natural cycles, each holiday was special and one way or another connected with the elements. So, the summer solstice, which falls on June 20-21, was a holiday-thanks to the Sun for life and a bright day. To this day the ancient Slavs celebrated the holiday of Kupala. But with the advent of Christianity, the day of Kupala was separated from the day of solstice and timed to coincide with the day of John the Baptist. Therefore, now the holiday of Ivan Kupala is celebrated on July 7.

Despite the fact that Ivana Kupala, or as he is also called Kupaila, Ivana Kupala, Ivanov Day, is considered a heathen holiday, Ukrainians from young to old love this day very much.
