Hi Mikl,

I think Shrovetide is similar to to Newroz celebrated in Middle East to welcome the spring.

Hi, Vortex!
Nowruz (Persian: نوروز‎) is analog Easter, Shrovetide celebrated in Russia 7 weeks before Easter, Maslenitsa is analog Carne Vale ( =goodbye meat!). Every year Maslenitsa is celebrated on different dates from midle February to midle March, it depends on the date of Easter (from April 4 to May 8). Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter on the first Sunday after the first spring full moon following the vernal equinox. The vernal equinox always falls on March 21. And the date of the full moon depends on the phase of the moon, which is why the holiday is rolling.
