AUSTIN, Texas – On December 5, 2015, Austin Ukrainians took part in the unique Austin Christmas tradition of decorating the cedar trees along Capital of Texas Highway Loop 360. Two trees are now decorated in the colors of Ukraine’s flag. Several Ukrainians from New York City, who had seen the event on Facebook, joined the Texans and even brought a decoration with them – a giant Tryzub that sits atop one of the trees.
