Maslenitsa is a Russian holiday that goes back to Middle Ages and a good opportunity for foreigners to meet Russian women for marriage, since it’s a family holiday. Maslenitsa is celebrated before the Lent. This year, the holiday was celebrated from March 7 through March 13.
Although Russian girls tend to spend Maslenitsa with their family, they still go out to celebrate it with their girlfriends. But the thing is that this holiday is not as popular as, say, Eastern, in Russia, which is why it’s not celebrated by most Russian women, only the most religious ones.
However, knowing what’s Maslenitsa and when it’s celebrated still gives you an edge among all foreigners who want to meet Russian brides with the help of online dating websites. The mere fact that you wish a girl ‘happy Maslenitsa’ via online chat will surely attract the Russian girl’s attention.
Russian girls date only the foreigners who take at least some interest in the Russian culture, traditions and language. However, there are also those who don’t need their man to know about all that, as their ultimate goal is to leave the country as soon as possible.
But if your Russian girl plans on staying in Russia, she’ll surely appreciate your knowledge of Russian holidays.
There were lots of rites and ceremonies surrounding Maslenitsa, but with the passage of time pretty much all of them have been forgotten. The only thing that remained attached to Maslenitsa is that Christians eat pancakes this whole week (in 2016, it was from March 7 through March 13).
And you can imagine that there are quite a lot of pancakes to eat! So if you’re chatting with a Russian girl of your interest in an online chat, building up the conversation, trying to be funny and all, you could make a joke about the amount of pancakes Russians eat on Maslenitsa.
For example, you could make a joke that she should stop eating so many pancakes on Maslenitsa otherwise, say, “I won’t take you as my Russian bride.” It’s funny and it’s unlikely she will find it offensive in any way. Especially if the girl clearly has no weight problem whatsoever.
Also, knowing a pancake recipe or two would certainly help you build up the conversation with a Russian girl during Maslenitsa. You could even ask her to share her favorite pancakes recipes with you. And Russian women sure love to help and please their men however they can.
Or even better, you could share your favorite pancake recipes with that Russian girl. And if she indeed cooks pancakes following your recipe, and the entire family enjoys it and asks her where did she find out about such a recipe, you’ll surely get approval from the family.
And the family’s approval of the choice of man is very important for Russian babes. So if your goal is to meet Russian mail order brides, Maslenitsa could be a good opportunity to do that.
If you ever get to the stage of coming to Russia to meet a Russian babe you chatted with on some dating website, you could come on Maslenitsa and spend a week with her eating delicious pancakes. The girl will surely appreciate your efforts to show that you care about her religion and respect Russian traditions.
Or even better, you could visit her in Russia and take her out to restaurants around the town so that she could have at least some kind of respite from munching on pancakes. FYI, most Russian women eat pancakes only on Maslenitsa, and then they avoid them the entire year. Guess why? That’s right, because they had way too many pancakes on Maslenitsa.
