A good number of folk narratives (tales and epic songs) begin with a feast, where the action begins. The Russian text says literally “a feast for the whole world,” but as this is merely a folk-narrative expression, and a rhyming one at that, I chose to translate it more plainly in English, as the expression “a feast for the whole world” would be taken to literally.
