Special Impressions May 15, 2017
You would have very special impressions of these holidays if your stay in the city coincides with one of the festivals. These days are not days off nor they are ordinary working days.

Youth Day is celebrated on the last Sunday in June. It is marked by young people's sports competitions, shows and concerts. Graduation parties at high schools are usually held on that day or on its eve.

February 15 is Afghan War Memorial Day. On that day the participants of that war gather near Afghan Memorial (behind Luhansk Hotel), make speeches, sing soldiers' songs, lay flowers to the memorial paying tribute to the victims of that war.

May 31 is the holiday of all school students and teachers: it was the last day of studies that is called “The Last Bell Day”. When I was a teacher in Luhansk, we observed that Ukrainian festival on that day. Now it is observed on May 25. It is observed with many concerts at secondary schools. School-leavers put on their traditional school uniform, wear holiday ribbons with little bells and take a stroll in city parks or downtown.

September 1 is our Day of Knowledge, the start of the school year at all schools. This day was often the day of outings and guided tours for school students and special lessons for them, which may be held at museums or in the open. These special lessons are called "The First Lessons". They are dedicated to the most important events in history.

I must say the best festival for my school students was the arrival of a foreign guest speaker to our school. I often invited my Internet friends who used to arrive to Luhansk in their own business. My students would listen attentively to the guest speakers and ask numerous questions. Such visits were great to make a difference and a great thing to remember.
