14 February — Happy Valentines Day!

Let the Love be with you! Today and forever.

This is the day which people try spend with their loved ones, give them flowers, kisses, small presents, and lots and lots of love.

It is a relatively new holiday in Russia. In Soviet times all holidays except for New Year, which has replaced Christian Christmas, were abolished, and people were offered several new Soviet holidays like Labor Day, Anniversary of the Socialist Revolution of 1917, Women Day, etc. Valentines Day ceased to exist along with Christmas and others, but recently Russian people started celebrating various Western holidays such as Halloween, St. Patricks Day, and Valentines Day among them.

Of course in essence it is not a Russian holiday, but the idea which entangles it is really a magnificent one: it is an excellent motive for people to say I love you to those who they really love, but always fail to utter the magic words for one or another reason. So please take good care of your love and people who surround you.

Happy Valentines Day!

Before their departure Kirill and Mefody invent Slavic alphabet and translate several liturgical books from Greek into Slavic. Kirill and Mefody lay the foundation for Slavic literature. Their followers, banished from Moravia in 886, continue their teachers work in South Slavic countries.
