In Slavic mythology, Maslenitsa is a sun-festival, personified by the ancient god Volos, and a celebration of the end of winter. In Christianity, it's the last week before the onset of Great Lent. Also known as Butter Week, Crepe week, or Cheesefare Week, according to archaeological evidence from 2nd century A.D. Maslenitsa may be the oldest surviving Slavic holiday.
