Orthodox, even if they do not hold the "Great Lent" preceding the "Pascha", they prefer to restore order in the house on the eve of the celebration.
If you are a housewife and children have grown, you can do a general cleaning for a day, a maximum of two, and a woman who is at the office from 9 to 18:00 and arrives at home by 19:00, at best. Will find time for a spring cleaning on Thursday.
We suggest not to deviate from traditions, but to plan general cleaning in advance, for example, for the period: Monday-Thursday.
