Friends, time has come to declare date and a format "Night water butterflies №3"
This time date is dated for a holiday "Pancake week" - a seeing-off of winter (formally).
Pancake week — the holiday which has remained since pagan times. It is marked within a week before the Lent.
Custom to celebrate a pancake week originates since the most ancient times — from the Greek and Roman orgies and сатурналий. Slavs-pagans too celebrated during this period a spring holiday — a meeting of spring and a seeing-off of winter. In the people the pancake week always was cheerful time. Was considered that the one who will refuse to celebrate it, will live «in a bitter trouble and the harm will terminate».
It was accepted to mark a pancake week driving on a sledge from ice slopes, ignition of fires. Well and certainly, in the Pancake week it is accepted to bake pancakes, after all a pancake — a sun symbol.
