And this is one of them - celebrating the first day of March, as a symbol of the approaching spring.

So, on March 1st, folk in my minuscule and unimportant part of the world give each other martenitsi, small thingamajigs, made of red and white threads and meant to wish health and good luck to those we gave them to. We never buy them for ourselves, but only for friends and family and wear them until we see the first stork, swallow (but swallows being much tinier, storks are usually our best bet Tongue ), or the first blooming tree - all signs that spring is finally here.

So, this little and not quite necessary lecture concluded - happy first of march, guys! (Won't be giving them individually, 'cause I'm not sure those who didn't make the list would be able to live with the disappointment Tongue )

I'm gonna be getting a fucking furlough notice 'cause my Government is currently completely fucking dysfunctional and impotent and inept and fucking feckless and ain't none of it my fault and it's completely fucking outta my control. Weeping ... I like your gifts and sentiment better, ManlyGirl's become quite the master of crochet. I'm gonna ask her to make me something.

God, girly, I'm sorry Sad This country is so fucked! Censored

You should show these kinds of gifts only after they're finished Tongue
