Men's Day

    Men's Day is February 23, the Army Day. All men in Russia are liable for call-up including reservists. On this day women usually give men small gifts. It's strange, but the holiday is not so widely and cheerfully celebrated as Women's Day.

    February 23 is Soldier's Day, known until recently as Soviet Army Day, popularly viewed as a holiday for all men and closely followed by its female counter-part, Women's Day, March 8, when women receive flowers, presents and are toasted by men.
