There are a lot of holidays in the Ukraine, all of which are important to the Ukrainians. However, there is one day that symbolizes the independence of our city Kharkiv.

On this special day, adults don't go to their jobs, and children don't attend school. There are many social activities prepared by the Municipal. During the day, people go to the free markets where they can buy everything they need. It could be a bouquet of flowers, a CD player, or a car.

Children can enjoy a big circus that is located in the center of the city. When I was a child, I looked forward to this occasion to go to the circus with my family. However, the best part of the day was the fireworks in the evening. Most of Kharkiv's population enjoys that show.

After that, most of the young people go to parties to continue celebrating. Most of the city's population would probably say that the 23rd of August is the happiest holiday for them.
