Russian Family Day Celebrations

Russian Family Day Celebrations

Termed as an orthodox version of Valentine’s Day, the July 8 holiday celebrated in Russia is all about love, family, and fidelity. The tradition is relatively new as it was only introduced in 2008 and is not very well-known in other parts of the globe.

This celebration is called the Day of Saint Peter and Saint Fevronia who are well-known patrons of traditional marriage in the country. The town of Murom hosts a number of people, especially the married ones, every year as it is the place where Saint Peter and Saint Fevronia ruled.

Even Russian singles become a part of these festivities which include the Russian tradition of giving and taking gifts. This Russian holiday is symbolized by a daisy which represents purity, love, and fidelity.

Perfect Gifts from Russian Ladies

  • Food is definitely the foremost way to woo a man. When a Russian lady cooks a culinary masterpiece or an ordinary yet mouth-watering dish for a loved one, it is considered to be the most valuable gift. One can bake pizza or a cake in the shape of the heart and present it to someone they truly admire.
  • A useful gadget can also be presented that will help in staying connected with the loved one. Even presenting with a hands-free device would be a symbol that the lady is willing to hear more of the voice of the person she truly loves.
