Malanka is the oldest and the most colorful pagan ritual preserved in modern Ukraine
There are so many of them - and they are so different each malanka is valuable in its own way and worth mentioning.
Many countries in Europe have old pagan winter rituals
Malanka is my favorite winter holiday since 2006. I try to visit as many malankas as possible every year - and show their wild energy to anyone interested in this theme. - Iryna Pustynnikova
