The Holidays are Over! Come Alive, Folks!
“The morning of 10 January”… in Russia, there’s a long holiday from 1 January to 10 January, from New Year‘s to three days after Russian Christmas. As “liquid refreshment” is a VERY popular component of holiday merrymaking in Russia, society’s only dealing with reality. Would you want to deal with a bunch of hungover employees right after New Year’s and Christmas… I think not!
Chinese Chi Kung will help you get rid of those post-holiday blues and blahs. The exercises have been practised in the Celestial Empire for several thousand years; they reputedly improve health and ramp up energy.
10 January 2012
As for me, I’m of the “take a shot of Bushmills and see what the morning brings” school. If worst comes to worst (a raging Excedrin Headache #1313 and a mouth that tastes like Secretariat just took a dump in it), there’s always the old reliable Russian cure-all, pickles and rossol (pickle juice). Hey, it works for us, and no one disputes our title as World Champion Hearty Partiers. If all else fails, try a “hair of the dog that bit you”… as Johnny Cash sang, “The beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad, so I had one more for dessert”… were you expecting otherwise from me?
