Mavkas Week usually begins after Holy Trinity Sunday. This year it starts today on 13th of June. It is believed that at a time when rye is blooming, the undead beings, spirits of nature, mavkas and mermaids come out of water, theor hidings and walk through forests and fields to tickle to death everyone they meet. This is the period of time when the souls of the dead are among the living.
The gifted Alisa Tochylovska celebrates the Green Holidays and Mavkas Week with a little help from this forest troll. One can only hope it isn't one of the nature spirits intent on tickling people to death.
