celebrations in Russia are a big deal, and can sometimes go on for two
or three days, or even longer! It is traditional for the person whose
birthday it is, to provide the celebrations, food and drink for his/her
guests. So if you invite a group of friends out to a restaurant for

usually take place in the home with lots of food, drink and merriment.
