Overwhelming majority of Ukrainians considers Easter a really big holiday – poll

Orthodox Ukrainians will celebrate Easter on April 27

An overwhelming majority of Ukrainians (some 87.7%) considers Easter a really big holiday.

These are the results of a poll, carried out by Razumkov Center in April 2008, and forwarded to UNIAN news agency.

Almost every tenth respondent (some 9.4%) regards Easter as an ordinary holiday, and only some 1.8% of those polled do not consider Easter a holiday. Others (some 1%) could not answer the question.

In line with the poll results, the citizens’ attitude to Easter has significantly changed over the last 6 years. Thus, in 2002, some 80.7% of those polled said that Easter was a really big holiday, some 13.9% regarded it as an ordinary holiday, some 4.5% did not celebrate Easter, and some 1% could not answer.

The poll was carried out by Razumkov Center on April 11-17, 2008. 2019 respondents aged over 18 years old in all regions of Ukraine. The error margin makes 2.3%.

This year Orthodox Ukrainians will celebrate Easter on April 27.
