    Well it's pagan in the sense that it predates literally every single aspect of the Abrahamic faiths including Abraham himself. So I have to chime in with my own what the hell is your point?

    If that is the case - and I'm not saying that it is - but even if that's the case, how does this make smashing statues right? What justification do you have for such a crass social and cultural affront?

    People have been leaving stuff at graves and tombs, long before the invention of gods, and tens of millennia before the Vikings arriving in Russia.

    Such a custom wasn't invented by the Vikings, sovietchild.

    And lot of the ceremony and customs of leaving something for the dead, didn't originally occur because of gods or religions. There have ancient belief in the afterlife, long before any belief of organised religions.

    I found the answer for flowers on graves, but I am loathe to continue this Red Herring until soviet directly answers some of the questions asked of him.
