November in Russia, it is necessary to admit, does not pleasean abundance of days off. In the post-Soviet period, the holidays were adjusted in November. Some days off were abolished, while others took an honorable red seat in the calendar.
In addition, certain categories of citizens are singling out special thematic holidays of November. Orthodox believers, in turn, celebrate special events in the church calendar.
Public Holidays in November
The main and only public holiday in November, which is a day off, is November 4. On this date the Day of National Unity is celebrated.
Unfortunately, today there is a high percentagecitizens who have no idea what holiday falls on November 4. Asking the question of how to rest in November (holidays in the minds of many are associated with the weekend), people do not know what event is associated with the main state November holiday.
At the same time, the date has deep etymologicalroots, since it was noted long before the revolutionary events of 1917, after which it was abolished. During this period, the holidays in November in Russia underwent a serious restructuring. This was due to a change in the politicalregime and building in the country, with a desire to displace and replace all the old that was associated with pre-revolutionary Russia. Some holidays in November were abolished, new ones were introduced, which were noted until the late 1990s - early 2000s.
Thus, the holiday of National Unity, celebrated inRussia until 1917, ceased to be a solemn event. An alternative in Soviet times was the 7th of the same month - the anniversary of the October Revolution. This date became one of the main holidays of the country and was celebrated right up to the change of the political regime in Russia.
November 4 again entered the November holidays in 2005 and is a red date in the calendar to the present.
Anniversary of the liberation of Russia from Polishintervention by princes Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky is of special importance for the history of our country. In connection with this, this memorable date was included in the number of state holidays.
Church holidays are radically different fromsecular. And although they are not official holidays, many Orthodox believers follow the orthodox calendar and celebrate events related to religion.
