Today we have a day off from work. It is a holy day both for Christians (who celebrate Jesus's return to space) and Marxists (who celebrate the 8-hour workday). Most of the remaining Christians gather to the churches, whereas I suppose the Marxists gather at The People's House (no seriously, that's a literal translation of what the Marxist temples are called here). It is too bad they these events should fall on the same day, as either would be enough to warrant a day off. But I shall just have to try to enjoy it twice as much.
