Pancake week is a pagan holiday, which was known in Russia before the adoption of Christianity, and goes back to the days of the Slavs. Immediately make a reservation — the church tradition does not consider him «his», and in the Orthodox calendar there is no position with this name. But there is a cheese week and a week (Sunday), Sour, but they have a completely different meaning than the people’s carnival.
In Russia they always loved the oil dish. And until now, oilcup is celebrated widely throughout Russia and not only. Fisticuffs, burning stuffed animals, pancakes with everything you can imagine, caviar, mushrooms, dances, dances … All this remains so far. By tradition, the forest of all the others is celebrated in Kostroma. People dress up in old clothes and celebrate all week. Pleasant
