Happy Maslenitsa!

 Maslenitsa or Pancake week- perhaps the most cheerful winter holiday in Russia. (is going on now till Monday)

The rituals of Масленица are very unusual and interesting because they combine the end of the winter holiday rituals and the opening of new spring festivals and ceremonies, which were to promote a rich harvest.
The main  tradition of celebrating  Maslenitsa - baking and eating pancakes ( блины) - round, yellow and hot as the sun, with different feelings.

Maslenitsa is celebrated during the week preceding the Lent. Every day of Maslenitsa was devoted to special rituals.

If you want to wish your Russian friends Happy Maslenitsa you can say/write:
Весёлой Масленицы!
C Масленицей!

Поздравляю с Масленицей!
