Shove off Winter with Shrovetide

Sick of all the ice and snow? The cold weather? Plan a Shrovetide festival to chase winter away. This traditionally Slavic festival typically occurs in the last week of February. The celebration includes sledding in bright colors, family parties, singing carols. Oh, and one more thing, pancakes in the shape of sun to symbolize the coming of spring, and everything strong and new. Maybe if we start now, we can send Old Man Winter packing a little early this year. And have a little fun while you're at it.
