 Defender of the Fatherland Day is one of Russia's public holidays and is celebrated nationwide on February 23. 
Women often give presents and postcards to their male relatives, including those who never served in the military. On a workday before or after the holiday, many women also congratulate their male colleagues and schoolboys may receive small presents from their female classmates. We also made little presents for our fathers, brothers and friends.
