Traditionally made and consumed during Maslenitsa (which actually just came to an end this past week!).
Andrewbradleywatson, that’s what I thought at first too, but it would throw Anna and Vronsky out of sync with the Levin and Kitty timeline… Unless Kitty actually spent a year and a half in Germany and Levin spent a year and a half moping around his estate, and Tolstoy doesn’t mention the huge ellipses in THEIR lives.
I was EXCITED to hear that the movie Stalingrad came out in theaters today, only to be disappointed that it received satisfactory/terrible ratings due to the stupid love story that always ruins historical movies. I WANT WAR AND TRIBUTE TO THE FALLEN, NOT YOUR STUPID FUCKING MELODRAMA.
