So, we're coming up on the "start" of my religious calendar, as it is now.  It's no secret to my friends and family that I'm a huge fan of taking some time each year to fast and reflect.  My ethnic tradition, a Dual Faith, provides an outlet for that.  Coming in a little less than two weeks is fašiangy, or Fat Tuesday, starting Lent.  Unlike a lot of contemporary Catholics, I fast as completely as possible - more akin to Orthodox traditions with a hint of Islam that I picked up in high school.

Coming up at the start of March, part way through the fast, I'm assembling the bits and pieces that I need to assemble kraslice and Morena.  Then come March 20th, we will built a modest feast and sacrifice some of it to our ancestors as they return to the world.  When we sacrifice the food we also burn Morena; sacrificing the winter so that Jarilo and the spring and the warmth can return to us as well.

I'm definitely going to return to these topics over the next month and a half.  There's some very interesting things here and definitely some things that I would like to think about and flesh out about my own practice as well.
