National Day of Conception
The ever-so-crafty Russians have found a “solution” to their lack of population growth. Today, September 12th, is the National Day of Conception. People are urged to stay at home from work and spend the day getting busy (do people use that term anymore?). Couples who give birth in nine months on the June 12th national holiday can win prizes (anything from household appliances to cars to houses).
If the US introduced this tradition, it may surpass Thanksgiving as Men’s favorite holiday.
Meanwhile, what if I lived in Russia? Could I still get work off even if I wasn’t setting out to conceive? And what activities would the government consider reasonable substitutes for the single gals out there?
