People taking part in the Ninth “Childhood City” carnival in central Krasnoyarsk on 1 June 2014. Thousands of children, their relatives, and teachers took part in the procession to demonstrate suits, styles, dances, and folklore of different regions of the world on International Children’s Day.

In Moscow, the KPRF organised fun for kids from orphanages, children from poor families, and disabled kids. Y’know, those Reds gave the kids… CANDY (I hope that they gave out “Birds’ Milk”… that’s GOOD EATS)! I’d be glad to stand with such decent folks any day of the week. Call me a “commie”… that’s OK… it means that I give a shit and that I “wanna” do good.

This is an old-school Red holiday that refused to die out. Good on the folks who kept such sweet (literally) Sov traditions alive.

20 April 2014. It’s Holy Easter! HOORAY!

00 Happy Easter 01. Happy Acolytes. 20.04.14.

______________________________

It’s a time of celebration and FUN… this is the central day for all real Christians. This is what our faith is all about. Don’t have a long face… this is a joyous time. That’s why so many people reject Christianity; it looks as though some believers were not only weaned on pickles, they’ve been their constant diet ever since. SMILE and pass the pierogies… we’re Christians… that’s what we do! … Yes, I WILL have seconds on the galumpkis, if you please.

18 April 2014. Easter’s On Its Way… Making Easter Eggs in Yekaterinburg

00 Easter 01. Assumption Cathedral Yekaterinburg. 18.04.14.

______________________________

They’re gettin’ ready for Easter in Yekaterinburg (that’s in the Urals… it’s where the Imperial Family suffered martyrdom). People at the Assumption Cathedral are making Easter eggs for the weekend services. Yes, Virginia, things are achingly NORMAL in the Mother Church… thank God for that! Get those last-minute things done… it’s almost here! Remember… the Easter Bunny’s legit… he’s on pre-Revolutionary Easter cards with “Christ is Risen” on ‘em… let your kids have some FUN…
