Our hope in Sochi 2014! :-)

Hi folks! In fact it's just our winter variant of P.E. class. Of course not all our students are crazy about skiing but some really enjoy this activity. I've chosen the most enthusiastic faces. And what do you think about skiing?

More fun...

Shrovetide fun!

An important part of Shrovetide is playing games. Ryazan people took part in some funny competitions like tug-of-war, fighting with pillows, building snow castles and having snow battles in them etc.
In the end of the day they burnt Shrovetide and watched wonderful fire show.

The taste of Shrovetide

Hello, there!
The most popular traditional food on these days is pancakes. The hot, round pancakes symbolized Yarilo.The Slavs believed that by eating pancakes, they got power, light and warmth of the sun. Russian people usually eat pancakes with honey, caviar, jam, sour cream and other things.

Welcome to Russian Maslenitsa!

I’d like to tell you about Shrovetide. It’s a great Russian holiday in late February and early March. Long ago Slavs believed in god of the son Yarilo. They believed that that they had to help fight against winter and bring in the spring.
Last week, there was great Shrovetide celebration in Ryazan, including playing games, singing, dancing, eating a lot of tasty food and just having fun.
