AnastasiaDate, one of the largest international dating services worldwide, has called upon all members to celebrate the Maslenitsa Festival together online. Maslenitsa is the traditional Slavic festival celebrated from February 12 to 18 this year. The holiday is marked in countries including Serbia, Slovakia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Macedonia.
The popular service is always aiming to bring members together from all over the world and encourage friendship and interest in other traditions.
Maslenitsa is celebrated in the period before the beginning of Lent. It is also popularly known as Butter Week and is the time for eating pancakes or blini and other tasty food prepared using dairy products.
It is an annual sun-festival that has a history stretching back to pagan times. In today’s modern era, the traditions of the past are still followed and customs include bonfires, snowballing, and sledding.
The festivities last for seven days with a final dose of gluttony. It is the last week that Orthodox Russians can eat dairy before Lent. The festival provides people with the opportunity to feast to their heart’s content on delicious pancakes and a host of other food items made using dairy products. The festival heralds the approach of spring and is celebrated with food and drinks of various varieties and fun activities like snowball fights and sledding.
AnastasiaDate is keen for members to share this folklore with all singles worldwide and is urging them to get chatting with their matches. This year AnastasiaDate has challenged members to try pancake flipping on webcam with their matches to see who can get the most flips.
Members can discover more about Maslenitsa and how it is celebrated by making contact with matches using AnastasiaDate’s features including Live Chat, CamShare, and Correspondence.
