Russia is currently undergoing a population decline, so the governor of Ulanovsky is giving the people the day off to “work” on the problem.
Sergei Morozov wants couples to take the day off work to have sex. If a baby is born on national day, they will receive cars, TVs or other prizes.
The other baby-making initiatives seem to be working, the population has increased 4.5% over the last year.
Let’s hope the holiday is a trend.
