Let’s Say “Good News”

On the surface this may not seem like much, but it really is a biggie:

The Russian parliament has abolished what used to be the main Soviet holiday – the October Revolution Day marking the Bolshevik uprising in 1917.

MPs adopted amendments to the Labour code – which also replaced a holiday marking the new Russian constitution and introduced new bank holidays.

It gives Russians nearly 10 days off around the New Year and the Orthodox Christmas and replaces Revolution Day.

That is a pretty hefty accomplishment for the Russian Parliment. This would be like the United States Congress Critters doing away with July 4th.
