Butter Week (Masnytsya) in Stockholm

Masnytsya or Butter Week, is one of the oldest Slavic holiday, which celebrates during the last week before Great Lent.
It has its origins in the pagan tradition.
In Slavic mythology, Masnytsya is a sun-festival, personified by the ancient God Veles and a celebration of the imminent end of the winter.
So, Spring is coming! 🙂 Let’s celebrate it! 🙂
