“Масленица” (“Maslenitsa”) - is an Eastern Slavic traditional holiday celebrated a week before Lent, which has retained a number of elements of pre-Christian Slavic mythology in its ritual basis.

In the folk calendar of the Eastern Slavs, the holiday marks the border between winter and spring, as well as the Meat Eater and Lent. An analogue of the carnival in European countries. Maslenitsa is akin to “Fat Tuesday” and Myasopust among Catholics. In the calendar of the Russian Orthodox Church, this period is called Cheese Week. The names Myasopust, Meatfare Week and Cheese Week in Rus’ were used only in the holy calendar as “church”.

The date of Maslenitsa changes every year depending on the date of the celebration of Easter. The traditional attributes of the folk celebration of Maslenitsa are the effigy of Maslenitsa, fun, sleigh rides, festivities; Russians have pancakes and cakes.
