Maslenitsa – Russian Carnival

Yesterday was the last day of Maslenitsa, the Russian equivalent of Carnival, which lasts for one week. It can be summarized in two traditions: enjoying blini (pancake) before the period of Lent starts and burning dolls to celebrate the end of winter. Hurray for that!
