Revolution Day

    Revolution Day takes place on November 7 and 8. It marks the day in 1917 when the masses of people revolted against the autocratic rule of the czars.

    Revolution Day is celebrated with huge parades and displays of young persons performing mass gymnastics. Similar celebrations take place on the anniversary of Lenin's birthday. The revolutionary leader is a national hero in Russia, and on both these holidays large pictures of him are carried in the processions and are displayed in homes and public buildings.
