Helloooo, Gabriel!

How’re the things on your side? I didn’t visit EC for some time, but now during my vacation I’m going to do it more often. I miss your fascinating blogs and discussions, especially our voice recordings while learning English phonetics. I miss the comments of our friends and fun that we had, our virtual  parties and so on. I see you aren’t very active, either. It’s a pity.

Have an exciting weekend ahead!

Galina

This is a beautiful song by ABBA about good old friends. Hope you’ll like it.

There's also an interesting tradition to decorate birch trees with colourful ribbons.

Gabriel!

 On the Day of the Holy Spirit in Russia there’re also traditions and customs, developed over the centuries. Initially, it was a pagan festival dedicated to the Spirit, who comes down from heaven to earth in her birthday and gives his grace and happiness to everything.

On this day, it is impossible to take any action with the ground - plow or loosen or pull weeds. Such actions harm the soil and hurt mother earth, which gives the entire growing and living on the surface of its heat.
This day is also the beginning of Rusalka week.
In Slavic mythology, a rusalka is a female ghost, water nymph, or mermaid-like demon that dwelt in a waterway. At this time, they were supposed to have left their watery depths in order to swing on branches of birch and willow trees by night. Swimming during this week was strictly forbidden, othewise mermaids would tickle you to death and drag down to the river floor.

Hi, Gabriel

Today's Monday is also an unusual one! It's called Whit Monday or Pentecost Monday (also known as Monday of the Holy Spirit). It is the holiday celebrated the day after Pentecost. In some countries it's even a day off.

I'd like to tell you about Russian traditions of celebrating this holiday. They link Christian and ancient pagan rites. On that day, Russian churches look very unusual. They are decorated with birch branches, and the floor is covered with herbs and flowers. During the service, priests wear a very festive green chasuble and the congregation kneels facing each other.

The tradition of using birch branches for decoration is linked to the ancient pagan holiday of the summer, with the cult of plant blooming at the exact same time. Birch tree was the main iconic plant of the holiday, because it leaves appear earlier than other trees. Birch tree, according to the Russian peasants’ representation, was the link with the world of their ancestors. In the fresh green trees they saw the souls of the dead. Now the eve of the Holy Trinity Day (Saturday) is one of the four days in the year established by the church for special commemoration of the dead, the Saturday of the Trinity of the parents.

Yesterday evening on the way home from school I visited the nearest church. My mum had told me it was one of the four Saturdays in the year to commemorate the dead, but hadn’t mentioned it was before the Trinity. When I came into the church, I was astounded! The whole place was decorated with young birch trees and flowers! The floor was covered with fresh herbs! I enjoyed the fragrance of all this greenery. It was amazing! I bought six candles and lit them in front of different icons. Then a special service started. It was very impressive!
