Russians are waiting for a long March weekend
In March, Russians expect a long weekend and a shorter work week. They are dedicated to the celebration of International Women's Day on March 8.
As Rostrud reminds, this year's holiday itself falls on Sunday, so the day off is postponed to March 9th. As a result, the public holidays will be March 7,8 and 9.
For the first time in the world, the holiday was celebrated in 1909. In Soviet Russia, it became official, starting in 1919. At first it was called the International Day of Workers, and then it got its modern name.
