Pancake week is here!


Ancient Slavic tradition requires rejoicing your life for the whole week, meeting the coming spring. People say that during Pancake week every day is special and has own traditions, though one must eat pancakes and other delicacies for the whole week. There is a belief, that a pancake symbolizes the sun, and the more cakes you eat, the more sun you will see in your life.

On Sunday, which is the last day of Pancake week, we prepare to Lent and have to visit our relatives and neighbors asking them to forgive us for all the faults and offences. Thus, Lent means not only food restrictions, but also spiritual purification.

This holiday indicates that spring is coming closer, and we cannot wait to meet it!
