THE PHRASE "MNOHAYA LITA!" (MANY YEARS) IS USED BY UKRAINIANS
ON ALMOST EVERY OCCASION: AS A BIRTHDAY GREETING, A CONGRATULATORY
SAYING FOR A WEDDING, AS A TOAST, IN FACT ANYTIME ONE WOULD WANT
TO WISH ANY PERSON MANY MORE YEARS TO COME.
IT IS ALSO SUNG TO 3 BASIC MELODIES KNOWN BY ALL UKRAINIANS AFTER
THE PROPOSED TOAST, AFTER SOME ANNOUNCEMENT (OF MARRIAGE, BIRTHDAY,
ENGAGEMENT, ETC. . . .)
IT IS SOMETIMES SUNG IN CHURCH FOR GOOD HEALTH FOR MANY YEARS FOR
THE POPE, ARCHBISHOP, BISHOPS, CARDINAL, PASTOR, ETC.
