How we celebrate Maslenitsa

(The story of student Grade 5A -Vika Zinovieva )

One of the most favorite holidays in my family is Maslenitsa. This is a very cheerful holiday. Probably every family celebrates it. Maslenitsa is cheerful seeing off of Winter and joyful expectation of Spring, warmth and sunshine. In my family my Mom and me are making pancakes every day. And each time they are different, but still always like the sun. And we also like to go to the Narva Castle to see off the winter. There are many contests and competitions, people sing and go round dance. My Mom and me also participate in these competitions. And there people treat you with hot pancakes and tea. All people are happy and cheerful! I love Maslenitsa!

 Students of Narva Paju school created an e-book as a result of project work in the second period "My region". It is a research work done by students.

The most common feature for women was a characteristic short shirt or blouse called käised, sleeves. Complemented with a vertically striped skirt, it constituted the typical north Estonian women’s dress.  In men’s dress, the most widespread garment in 19th century North Estonia was a blue suit with knee breechess. White or blue and white striped linen clothes were used for summer wear. The main headgear for men was a tall black felt hat.
