Defender of the Fatherland Day – day of Army

Originally the holiday marks the first mass draft to the Red Army in 1919. Its aim was to honour all the people who served in the army, both men and women. But nowadays it is considered to be more like a Men’s Day or a day of those, who protects the country or are ready to do it. If you intend to book your Russian language course at this time, please don’t miss this holiday.

One of the most important traditions connected with this holiday is to honour the veterans, lay flowers to the memorials. You can also observe different kinds of events like concerts, parades and fireworks. It has also become a tradition to give small presents to husbands, fiancés, fathers, sons, brothers and co-workers.
