The calendar of the ancient Slavs

Most vividly, the dual faith is reflected in the peasant land-farming calendar, where the veneration of Christian saints is closely intertwined with pagan beliefs and rites. Over time, many of the most important rituals for the pagan were taken less seriously and gradually turned into children’s games.

Here is how the year of the Russian peasant passed. On the day of the winter solstice (December 25), it would be necessary to help the sun gain strength-because farmers burned bonfires, rolled burning ears, symbolizing the sun.

106 years ago, on March 24, 1905, the great writer and passionate traveler, the founder of the genre of science fiction, Jules Verne, died. The writer lived in the past and the future, on earth and underground, in the air, under water and on distant planets.

The Bermuda triangle mysteries

68 years ago, on October 21, 1944, the ship Rubicon was discovered in the Bermuda triangle. The ship was in good order, and there was food and water on Board, but there was not a single person on Board. Where all the crew went is a mystery.

I suggest you go to this mysterious area today. Don’t be afraid, our trip will be absolutely safe, because it is virtual!

Everyone has heard the phrase” Bermuda triangle”, but not everyone has a good idea where it is located. This is not a small patch around Bermuda, this is a very large navigable part of the ocean, and no legends will force ships and planes to avoid it. Continue reading
