Each person has their own idea of what a holiday. For some it is an opportunity to have fun, for someone - stay with friends, but there are people for whom the holiday - a state of mind. But one thing is certain: they are too few in the calendar, despite the fact that Russia has the highest number of holidays per year. Why do we need holidays, apart from the obvious? In the past, the holidays, and especially family gatherings, carried a deeper meaning: Show each family member that he is not alone, he is part of something big and reliable.
Open the calendar
The modern way of life, when everyone is busy with his business, strong family ties have become rare. But the need for each other this does not become less. And we still need our loved ones, if not more. So why not try to erase the greyness of everyday life of workers and do not arrange a holiday? Do you think there is no reason? Well, open the calendar. Almost every day marked some event.
