Russia has become a different world due to King Coronavirus…

King Corona Virus

When you meet someone now….you do not shake hands and you d0o not kiss each other on the cheeks as is custom in Russia. King Coronavirus has end several cultural formalities…

The roads are empty of cars, no hand shaking, items for someone are dropped off and you do not see them and you do not have a cuppa tea, you do not gawk at someone with a mask on, you sterilize everything, you stand in line to buy things at the taped areas spaced apart on the floor, in our Big Village the pharmacy takes one person at a time – the rest stand outside spaced two meters apart, you stockpile more than just buckwheat (grechikha and or kasha), you stay away from the elders due to health not disrespect and there are about a thousand other changes…

Yesterday, I met a friend who works in the Fish Farm as I was walking and we both immediately put our hands up as to tell each that was as close as we come to each other. Very strange for all guys always shake hands when they meet. It is a very strong Russian custom…

But…

I am watching what is going to happen at Easter?

April 19th, 2020 is Easter and I am suspecting that it could be an issue. The orthodox babushkas (and younger churchies) are notorious for kissing icons, monks hands and whatever they deem to kiss on, if it has religious meanings…

The churchy group is also the least easy to control. They seem to not listen to anyone and they just have to get close to that icon and kiss away…

I suspect that even if the Orthodox Church cancels Easter in the churches, the babushkas will rip the doors off the churches….hmm…

A few weeks ago I drove through a village and about twenty babushkas were outside the church yelling at the monk to open the doors…

We want to hug our God and no one will stand in our way…

Maybe King Corona will not stand in their way, but it will invite itself to travel with them and then all the Godliness they gathered will not help them…

I know it sounds like I am being bad…

Though King Corona is much badder…

PS: Go sterilize your hands before you touch your face…
