Day of a trade worker in Russia (23/07)

On the fourth Saturday of July, Russia celebrates Trade Worker's Day. This holiday date was established by Decree of the President of the Russian Federation of May 7, 2013 No. 459 "On the Day of the trade worker."

Since the time of Ancient Russia, trade has played an important role in the economic and even political life of the country. With the development of market relations, the profession of a salesperson has become one of the most common and in demand. And if in the Middle Ages it was mostly men who traded, then at present the majority of workers in this industry are women.

On their professional holiday, celebrated on the fourth Saturday of July, a significant part of the heroes of the occasion accept congratulations, as a rule, at the workplace.
