Russia is the largest country in the entire world and as a result, has a long and colored history. Over the years, the natives have amassed a number of strange superstitions, founded on ancient practices. Despite the strange way they appear to the rest of the world, for the Russians, these superstitions are just a part of everyday life and by following these unwritten rules, natives believe they have warded off bad luck for years and years.
Having A Birthday Party
If your birthday falls during the week, you should only celebrate it over the following weekend. To have a party on the day of your birthday is considered very bad luck in Russia and giving birthday wishes to someone before the day is even worse.
