All Day Cheesefare Sunday

Also known as Maslenitsa, or Forgiveness Sunday, Cheesefare is an Orthodox Christian religious holiday and Slavic folk festival, celebrated during the last week before Great Lent. Friends and relatives offer each other small gifts and ask each other’s forgiveness. Since Lent excludes parties, secular music, dancing and other distractions from spiritual life, Cheesefare represents the last chance to take part in social activities that are not appropriate during the more prayerful, sober and introspective Lenten season. This includes eating foods that are forbidden during Lent, such as cheese and wine. 

All Day Transfiguration Sunday

The Transfiguration of Jesus is an event reported in the New Testament when Jesus is transfigured and becomes radiant in glory upon a mountain. On the mountain, Jesus begins to shine with bright rays of light. Then the prophets Moses and Elijah appear next to him and he speaks with them. Jesus is then called "Son" by a voice in the sky, assumed to be God the Father. The Feast of the Transfiguration is celebrated by various Christian denominations, and falls at different points in the liturgical calendar depending on the denomination.
