Pancakes 🥞✨ or crepes - however you'd like to call these 😊 this whole week people in russia eat pancakes, as it's the week before lent (it's called maslenitsa). and every day there's some sort of tradition on where you go to eat your pancakes (i'm not an expert on that at all) but it all culminates on sunday - when there's a huge festival ✨💃 everybody eats a ton of pancakes + delicious fillings and they burn a doll of winter - so that summer comes sooner.
back in the day young people would jump over the fire so that it gives them good luck for finding love that year 🥞
i love different traditions, many of them have religious routes and this particular one clearly has pagan roots. but whether you believe in it or not, it's always fun to participate and it's a huge added bonus if it brings families together and makes people happy 😊
what's your favourite tradition/holiday and do you know it's routes?
also, our rescheduled livestream with @falkyou and @theminddesigner will happen tomorrow at 3pm my time - i'll post the detailed timezone breakdown on stories. if you're on the other side of the planet 🌏 you can watch the recording - using the same link as the live 😊 and that link will be in my bio!
