Russian Maslenitsa holiday 1

This weekend there was “Maslenitsa” party time. Thousands of people across Russia partied and fried big pan cakes, that as been said symbolize the Sun. Maybe we’ll have some more of this tomorrow, just a few shots from Vladivostok city, the Easternmost area of Russia on Pacific Ocean. Looks like they were having good times there.

      They celebrates Maslenitsa (Butter-day), it marks the end of winter. On that day slavs burn down the doll of Winter, it’s the main show of the holyday which came from the distant times. The author of that post should have been said something about it
