Maslenitsa

Today they celebrated Maslenitsa at the university.  I should have guessed it had something to do with Lent, since maslo means butter, but I didn’t figure it out till I got home and looked it up.  They played some games and danced and also burned the straw figure and said goodbye to winter.  And we ate lots of bliny.  They’ll do Nooruz next week since they have spring break then.
