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.
