Celebrating Maslenitsa In Kharkiv

Maslenitsa is a pagan holiday celebrating the end of winter and at the end of the festival Lady Maslenitsa is burned in effigy.  This particular Saturday turned out to be the last really cold day we had in Kharkiv this winter and so it was appropriate to celebrate the beginning of spring.
