Russian wedding

Sometimes when one is invited to a wedding but he/she doesn’t have any money for a present but still in mood to present something “heavy” then this is the idea.

Traditionally, in Russia newly married couple waits for something useful as a wedding present. Often this means they wait money or something that is hundred percent needed in the future household, like a washing machine or TV set.

This time the present was really heavy, but people afraid that the newly married won’t get it.

    Well, without some sort of translation, all I can guess is you gave them a…. brick. Wow. I wish I had a brick. But that one was even painted!! Much better than a plain old red brick.

    Big whoop. I can buy ‘em by the truck load.

    So, as they say, something got lost in the translation.

    Is IS a nice looking brick though…..:-)

    Um, I don’t know if this site is purposely doing it, to be cutesy perhaps, but the poor English is distracting at best, and incomprehensible at worst. It’s a shame for such a nice place.

      I think most or all the people who post are from Russia themselves, so English isn’t their native language. Instead of Engrish, or Spanglish, it’s Rusklish.

      I find no problem with the poor English, I see worse English from American’s posts every day. I would like to see translations because even though I have learned to transliterate Cyrillic I still can’t read most of the words (am amazed at how many I can though).

    Daer Stan,

    Your English is far from perfect.

    Best regards.

    Haha, excellent gift idea :-D

  12. MISS India says:

    OMG those poor poor russians, can’t even afford to buy proper gifts. Such a corrupt and sad place :-(

  13. Taupey says:

    I agree it is a cool gift. And sadly the meaning would be lost to so many.
