Happy International Women's Day!

8 of March is national holiday in Russia and was so since 1966 (it existed before that too but was working day). It is perhaps the second most popular holiday in Russia after New Year. The political sense is mostly gone so it is mostly "appreciation day" with custom of giving flowers and other gifts to women. Flower businesses boom on this day, some making 80% of their annual profit. Some feminists don't like it too much though because "women need no special appreciation day when they are given flowers - and the broom on every other day" but most people like it.

It has male counterpart, February 23, which is more divisive since it has clearly militaristic nature - "Defender of Homeland" day. Some think it doesn't apply to those who weren't in army, others don't like the idea at all. Most people also celebrate it to some degree and men usually get certain token of appreciation - like shaving cream :)

Happy 8 of March, girls! You are awesome!

It's a special day holiday without a serial number in the calendar. Congratulations!
St. Tib’s Day falls between the 59th and 60th of every fourth Chaos. This one occurrence in four years compounds the cycle of five.
What little is known about St. Tib has likely been made up entirely.

Controversy

Luckily, there is some debate about how this day is to be scheduled. There are even dueling popes!
From Pope Max Flax Beeblewax:
Though the Principia Discordia says that the day occurs once every 4 years, it first says that the Discordian and Gregorian calendars are perpetually aligned. Thus, we can reason that we actually only insert St. Tib’s Day into every 4th year that does not end in 66, unless that year’s century is 3 more than a multiple of 4. For example, 3166 does contain a St. Tib’s Day, but 3066 didn’t and 3266 won’t.
And from Pope Jess C

Forasmuch as the feast of the nativity of Christ, Easter, Whitsuntide, and other festivals, commonly called holy-days, have been heretofore superstitiously used and observed; be it ordained, that the said feasts, and all other festivals, commonly called holy-days, be no longer observed as festivals; any law, statute, custom, constitution, or canon, to the contrary in anywise not withstanding.

Forget the Scarf. These #Gifts Change Lives.

It used to be thought of as a #miracle to cure someone of blindness or heal a disfiguring #disease. Now we all have that #power. May you enjoy a miraculous #holiday season.
A gift that everyone can use even in our affluent #society is health and it can now actually be given away. How cool is that?

I have no idea what these holydays are for, so they will probably end with drunken antics and hallucinogenic fugues.

In 12 hours there will be an astronomical solar holiday, one of holidays of the Wheel of the Year (the year divided into 8 equal intervals of time, according to astronomical solstices and equinoxes). The following traditional names of this solar holiday have been preserved: Samhain, Dziady, Calan Gaeaf and others.
The Christian Church has connected these solar traditions with the fixed dates of the Gregorian calendar so that even the neopagans celebrate these solar festivals when the Pope prescribe, and not at a time when, guided by the sun, it was celebrated by ancient sunworshippers.
In any case, according to the Sun - Samhain, Dziady, Calan Gaeaf this year - on November 7 (according to the Gregorian calendar) at 05:48 London Time. Congratulations on the coming holiday!

The most beautiful way to get pregnant


I cannot put that feeling down so I have to write it down here.

I have met some #vegan people some months ago and started befriending with them, including females. I also met one female who was some attractive to me. She later told us that she likes to go to the gym to work-off on a 2-day scheme which is for me quite a lot.

Then on this Wednesday I met them again and we went to a vegan restaurant called #Unterwegs here in #Krefeld. So far all went nicely. I had a talk to her again as I took her outside the restaurant and told her that we are both not fitting because (she told it us, too) I'm no #sporty guy and I don't do #hiking... Show more...
