Last week was a week of Maslenitsa in Russia or as it’s also called – a Pancake week. It has been celebrated since old times by Slavic people who traditionally make pancakes and burn dummies to meet spring and say goodbye to winter.

Interesting enough, but this year citizens of the Lipetsk region chose to set fire to a dummy of White Walker from “The Game of Thrones” which is rather popular in Russia, too. There were dances and a fire show and people looked happy and excited. Such a strange blend of the Slavic pagan tradition and modern American pop culture!
