history of the holiday
Unofficially, the Day of Defender of the Fatherland is called "Male Day". This is a male analogue of March 8, when women congratulate the defenders of the Motherland and family. 100 years ago, on January 28, 1918, the Council of People's Commissars led by Lenin decided on the basis of the Red Army. January 29th came out decree on the creation of the fleet.
In early January of the next year, the Soviet authorities decided to celebrate the first anniversary of the creation of the Red Army and Fleet. The celebration was decided to spend Sunday in the next 28-29 January, but there were few two weeks to prepare for large-scale events.
At the initiative of the Mossovet, headed by Lvi-Lvom Kamenev, the celebration decided to coincide with the so-called red gift day - he was conducted to collect money and other material values for the needs of the army. The date was appointed Sunday, February 23, 1919.
In 2019, the "Male Day" was the 100th anniversary.

The next national holiday after the New Year and Christmas is the February Day of Defender of the Fatherland. For quite a long time, he was not non-working, although on International Women's Day weaving a long time ago. Since 2002, the situation has changed - now female, and male holidays are equal, both are noted by additional holidays. Let's figure out how much weekend will be the Russians on February 23, 2020 - how the transfer of a non-working day was planned in the government this time.
How to rest on February 23, 2020 - weekends for the holiday and transfer of a non-working day
In 2020, as a year ago, February 23 accounts for a day off. Last year it was Saturday, this time - Sunday. In such cases, an additional day of rest is not burning - weekend declare some other day that should have become workers.
We do not accidentally remember 2019 - then, we recall, extra non-working day from February moved almost three months ahead. For February 23, the Russians rested on May 10. Thus, the government increased the May holidays for another additional day.
In 2020, this will not be for Sunday, February 23, we will rest on Monday, the 24th.
In total, Russians will receive three consecutive weekends in 2020 in connection with February 23 - we will be resting from February 22 to February 24.
Will it be February 21, 2020 with a short working day
No, Friday on the eve of the three holiday weekends in February 2020 - full-time. Abbreviated can be declared only such a working day that stands in the calendar immediately before the holiday. For example, in 2019, February 23 fell on Saturday, and therefore Friday, the 22 numbers, was a short day in most organizations.
Who will rest four days in a row
In some regions of Russia, weekend will be even more - four in a row. We are talking about the republics where Buddhism is traditionally distributed. This year, on February 24, the new year is celebrated on the lunar calendar of Buddhists - in different locations, it is called differently.
In the Republic of Altai, the holiday is called Chaga Bayram, in Buryatia, Transbaikalkom, and the Ust-Orda Buryat district of the Irkutsk region - Sagalgan, in Kalmykia - Tsagan Sar, and in Tyva - Stegaa. We are talking about the same festive day.
In all listed regions (and even one separate district of the Irkutsk region), the first day of the white month is a festive day off.
Since in 2020, the date of the holiday coincided with the all-Russian weekend, in these regions of local residents, it is waiting for the transfer of New Year's day off on Tuesday, February 25.
Thus, the part of the regions of Russia is formed by four-day mini-holidays in February - from February 22 to 25, 2020.
As the Russians will work and rest in 2020: Calendar Workers and Weekend Days
In total in 2020, we are expecting 248 workers and 118 weekends and holidays. Recall that non-working holidays in Russia are:
- 1, 2nd, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 January - New Year holidays;
- January 7 - Nativity;
- February 23 - Defender of the Fatherland Day;
- March 8 - International Women's Day;
- 1st of May - Spring and Labour Day;
- 9th May - Victory Day;
- 12 June - Russia Day;
- November 4th - Day of People's Unity (Art. 112 of the Labor Code).
With the coincidence of the weekend and non-working holidays, the day off is transferred to the next day after the festive working day (Art. 112 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation). In mid-July, it became known what will be transferred in the next year (Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of July 10, 2019 No. 875 "On the transfer of the weekend in 2020"). The Cabinet of Ministers secured that the day off from Saturday was postponed on Monday on May 4, and from Sunday January 5 - on Tuesday May 5.
Thus, in the New Year holidays we will relax eight days - from January 1 to January 8 . And on the May holidays allocated the same period, only with a break to work - from May 1 to 5 иfrom May 9 to 11 . Also, for three days of rest, we are expected in connection with the celebration of the Day of Defender of the Fatherland ( from February 22 to February 24 ), International Women's Day ( from March 7 to March 9 ) and the day of Russia ( from 12 to 14 June ). At the same time, the Day of People's Unity will be the only day off ( November 4th ).
