Since the Finns celebrate Pascha on the Gregorian calendar, are you guys currently in pre-Lent like the Byzantine Catholics here in the U.S.?
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

THE OPINIONS HERE MAY NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED ORTHODOX CHURCH

Finnish Lent. Words most Orthodox are overjoyed to hear by the time holy week rolls around.

Yep. For us it is Cheesefare Week. My Muslim colleague seemed sorry for me when I told him that I can't eat any meat for next seven weeks. ;D
