Mardi Gras. Мировой аналог славянского праздника Масленицы. по словами википедии(и не только) a few quotes from foreign editors reffering to Maslenitsa: we're preparing to celebrate Mardi Gras around the world. Maslenitsa is the Russian version of this week-long party. Also called Pancake Week (due to its qualification as an unending gorge-session on blini) ... Butter Week, or Maslennitsa, is celebrated each year before Lent and is a holdover from pre-Christian Russian beliefs ... ... Maslennitsa is a Russian celebration preceding lent, much like Mardi Gras in other regions of the world ... I argue that Maslennitsa has a very crucial meaning to the remaining towns ..... ...with each generation, the details of the celebration get ever so slightly blurred, and this could signify a possible end to Maslennitsa... What I could point out is that everytime the talk comes to Maslenitsa, there appears to be a need for an additional explanation of how it is a slavic holiday, what it's like and what it's called over there. If you don't want to get in this confusion the sure shot would be just calling it Mardi Gras
