I forgot to mention yesterday: At the kindergarten on Wednesday, we talked to the kids about the Men’s Day holiday, that it was a day to congratulate their dads, and said a bit about military professions. Later, when asked what the holiday was called, Dima piped up: “День Защитников Любви!” — Day of the Defenders of Love. I suppose he was confusing it with Valentine’s Day. Anyway, I thought it was kind of nice, the pacifist’s version of the holiday.
