Event description

‘Magic follows us since childhood. First we’ve been decorated with a little pentagram made of red plastic. It had a portrait of the patron of all the little ones with curled hair. It is also the time we receive the first of the magical names – ‘Oktiabriata’. We also find out that ‘they didn’t call us that for the Oktiabriata and that it’s nothing bad, it’s just a game of the future’

A quote from Victor Pelewin’s essay ‘Zombification’, 1990
