Every year our community garther together to celebrate the Victory Day on May 9.
Our tradition is to give flowers, usually red carnation or to lay wreaths at the war memorial sites.
At home, families gather around a festive table to honor surviving witnesses of World War II and remember those who passed away. They may also watch a favorite Soviet film based on the events of World War II, which is also known as the Great Patriotic War. These films are repeated each year but the audience seems to never grow tired of them.
It’s become our tradition here to celebrate Victory Day. Every year we meet at the Monument of Unknown Soldier to put flowers and remember those people who battled during the World War II. May 9 – Victory Day became the end of the Great Patriotic War for the USSR, which lost about 25 million citizens in the four years of fighting.
