Russia is holding an annual event called "Conception Day" because of declining populations. Apparently Russia is one of the most sparsely populated areas on earth with only 141 million people. By 2050 it could drop to less than 100 million.

People get time off for work for Conception Day and there is even a grand prize of a SUV for those that are successful!!!

What if it's just not a good day for it? sad.gif This reminds me of the old pre-revolution tsarist joke:

"Comes the Revolution, we'll all eat strawberries and cream!"
"But tovaritsh, I don't LIKE strawberries and cream . . . "
"Comes the Revolution, you'll HAVE to like strawberries and cream!!"

I notice they only get a half-day off work. I wonder how many take the time to attempt procreation, and how many just take a nap or catch up on housework!

wink.gif I can tell you what I'd do with a half-day off work, anyway...
