Was yesterday. Here, it is quite a celebration. It is sort of the opposite of the US (and seems to be Europe) - as when it is your birthday - you do something for other people. If you invite people out - you are expected to pay for it all. In return, you get beautiful flowers and a very sincere congratulations!
So, in one office, I ordered pizzas, the other office, I had cakes and candies.
Here is a picture of my first bouquet of flowers!
Then, at the other office some of my neighbor co-worker girls left me these flowers and candy!
Then, yet more flowers! And a gift certificate to a spa!
I like birthdays in Russia!
