In the Soviet calendar the professional holiday of teachers appeared in 1965 by the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Council. The first Sunday of October was designated as the day of celebration. As a result, teachers received their legal holiday, which fell out every day on a day off
Dear our teachers! Congratulations on your professional holiday! We highly appreciate the generosity of your loving hearts, your patience and understanding, dedication and love for us - your students! We wish you the best health, cheerfulness of body and spirit, joy from your hard work and every success in your personal life!
