What to do and not to do at a Russian birthday party?
There are different birthday traditions all over the world. Every country has its twist on celebrating this special day. It is common around the world to give presents and sing the “Happy Birthday” song, but Russia has some different ways of celebrating this special way. In general, Russian birthday parties are typically scheduled either for the exact birth date, or a little after it. Russians generally don’t celebrate birthdays beforehand, as this is considered a bad luck. There is a belief that the person who celebrates birthday in advance, risks not to live up to the actual birth date. Usually in Russia we give Presents and pull ears. We pull the ears of a birthday person upwardsby a number of the years to make sure that the person will grow taller. The tradition is not that popular among the younger generation anymore but you will still see some Russian people do it today.
How to memorize fast Russian numbers from 20 to 100?
Let’s continue learning numbers in Russian! We’ve already learnt how to count till 10 and how to change numbers one and two by genders. So it is high time to continue because we need to use numbers for catching the train or going to a shop, to ask people in Russia about their age and tell them interesting facts about your country. As you will see, the numbers from 20 are formed by adding a special ending, but do not forget about the exceptions! As always Alina and Jack are here for you to help!
