Thank you for posting this as this is one of the best guides to the tradition.

This portrays what we Carpies, i.e. Carpatho-Russians, Rusyns, Lemkos etc... do for ours and is probably the same for most Ukrainians as well.

The source of the original graphic goes back about forty years to ---- the diocesan newspaper of the Pittsburgh Byzantine Catholic eparchy (The BC World)  and the newspaper of the Greek Catholic Union ( The GCU Messenger). Many an ACROD and OCA priest copied the same and reprinted it in their Palm Sunday bulletins over the years - up to and including present days.  I couldn't resist - sorry... ;)

OK, but missing the green onions because the colour green respresents the Holy Spirit.

No dairy here, ham is the only one kind of meat and we put bread too.
