Subject: Name day
I am dramaturging "Three Sisters" and will be very thankful if someone
could give me more information about the Saint day of Irina (Irina's
name day in Russia, obviously on May 5) What rituals (religious or
people's) were held on that day? Is there any interesting references
(traditions, myths, other Russian literature) for this day?
