Pascha in Russia: exhibit highlights traditions
« on: April 04, 2012, 01:02:50 PM »
An exhibit at the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg, Russia, will feature art which calls to mind the celebrations of Pascha from the 19th Century to the present. The show opens this Friday.

From the article:
About 500 items, including graphics, cards, photos, billboards, books and applied art will tell visitors about Easter church services, traditional Easter gifts, meals, folk festivals held during the holiday, anti-religious Soviet propaganda and modern Easter celebrations.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
