White Walker Set On Fire (As Part of the Ancient Slavic Tradition)

1

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!

Sport Is Not About Selfies And Protein Smoothies

1

Do you like sport? What does it mean to you? Do you pay attention to attributes like a comfy shower and hi-tech fitness equipment? Do you like to see yourself in a mirror when you run or lift heavy weights? Or is all you need is a good result and to be in nice physical shape?

All these gyms have been in use since Soviet times, when people had a different attitude to sport in general. Those who come and sweat there do not pay much for gym membership and it’s no surprise that they often have even better results than members of expensive fitness centers.
