February 28, wind and snow did not prevent the cadets and students of the G.I. Nevelskoy MSU from celebrating the first spring holiday - Shrovetide. They thoroughly prepared for the festival: made a scarecrow of winter, and organized a real culinary contest for baking pancakes as an indispensable attribute, a symbol of the sun, which is so lacking in winter. The holiday was accompanied by a fun relay race. The scarecrow was burnt under the choral chant, «One, two, three – winter, go away!» The most delicious festival in Russia ended with hot currant tea with taiga honey, mountain hucklberry jam and pancakes. Maslenitsa festival gave the guys a good deal of positive emotions, joy and a wonderful anticipation of spring.
