Today in our orphanage celebrated Russian holiday – Maslenitsa. It is an ancient holiday – the day when all people said good bye to winter
and welcome spring.
Maslenitsa – a mixture of pagan and Christian Orthodox traditions.
In pagan tradition – to bake pancakes, which represents the sun. In the Christian tradition – is the week before the Great Lent, when you can eat meat.
Our guys have prepared a feast for everyone – for themselves and for both adults and kids.
And of course we have not forgotten the photograph.
