A Little Bit of Russian Tradition

on September 18, 2012

This lovely card of an oil painting comes from Nastya in Russia. She tells me of an old tradition they have in Russia – when you move into a new house, you must let a cat go around it first for good luck. Superstition and folklore really interests me, so I thought this card was fascinating!
