23 February — Homeland Defenders Day

Initially this was a holiday dedicated to Russian soldiers, who literally defended our homeland. But with time, as all men in Russia must spend two years in military service, this day became a national mens holiday. Women give presents to all men they are acquainted with: colleagues at work as well as all men-friends, husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons.

February 23 is a day off in Russia.
