Today I am grateful to my ancestors who told amazing fairy tales. I read a couple today, such as “Baba Yaga” and “Ilya Muromets“. They are truly magical, and use this archaic language, which mentions all sorts of objects, places and practices, which are no more. Plus ancient jokes and curses… Fascinating.
