The Day of National Unity

Today Russia celebrates the Day of National Unity.  Frankly speaking not all the Russians know the meaning of this holiday. It was established in 2005 instead of the Day of the Great October Socialist Revolution celebrated prior to 1991 on the 7th of November. It was the main holiday in the USSR.

We all well aware form the  school history lessons  that on the night of 7 to 8 November (New Style), 1917, in Petrograd an uprising was committed by the Russian proletariat, that the armed workers, soldiers and sailors seized the main post, telephone and telegraph offices, that the cruiser “Aurora” standing on the Neva quay fired, and it was the signal to start the capture of the Winter palace, and  that they overthrew the provisional government and proclaimed the power of the Soviets, which then existed in our country more than seventy years.

All these years, the  7th November Day was a “red day on the calendar”, a public holiday celebrated with military parade and demonstration of workers in the Red Square. With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Communist Party excommunication from the power there came the end of it. In Russia the 7th November Day, at first, was renamed the “Day of Accord and Reconciliation”, and then completely abolished. While in Belarus this day stays a weekend and a public holiday, which is now called a bit shorter than in the Soviet times, “The Day of the October Revolution.”

Russians are used to celebrate the November 7 Day, in addition, it successfully separated the first two quarters of the school year. The Russian government has therefore decided not to remove the holiday altogether, and replace it with something else. In Russian history, was found the day November 4, 1612, when the people’s militia led by Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky liberated Moscow from Polish invaders. And since 2005 we are trying to celebrate this holiday

Take an example from the Japanese!

How many generations may be in a genealogy tree of  European, American or Russian family? 10, 15, 20? I think the maximum is 20, because the documents containing genealogy information may be dated not earlier than the 17th century. That is the time when the first state revisions were conducted. There aim was to fix the quantity of  tax payers and reservists.  If they were not, we would never know about our ancestors anything. Surely there was a tradition ‘to know your ancestors to the 7th generation’, but the names of ancestors were forgotten over time. And today very rare families know their history more than the 19th century.

In Japan the situation is quite different. For Japanese it is a tradition to conduct their genealogy for centuries and even for thousands years. Every family carefully keeps records about their family events. They are written on special handmade paper (mino vasi)  by special ink and put in special wooden box. The box is also hand made and sealed, it is put into a safe place out of reach of sun, water and fire. In such way the genealogy books can be stored for a thousand years or more. Surely today the Japanese have an opportunity to compose their genealogy by means of computer, but the ancient tradition is more claimed. Lets take an example from the Japanese!
