One of the most delightful holidays is Maslenitsa, which celebrates the advent of springtime by burning winter in effigy, symbolized by a straw doll, drinking honey wine, and feasting on delicious bliny crepes in all variations. Why bliny? Because they are round and yellow and symbolize the sun. This is celebrated outside, so you should dress as warmly - and ideally - as colorfully as possible - a great reason to don traditional scarves from Pavlovskiy Possad, if you have one, &/or a nice warm hat, and join me for 'narodniye gulyania' - wandering the park and enjoying outdoor activities as we say goodbye to winter!
