There's no replacement for personal contact...

(Tim-not for the young ones) Explaining his reasoning behind instituting the holiday, Family Contact Day, the governor of Ulyanovsk region in Russia, Sergei Morozov, tells us approximately what every loving husband already knows: "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."

If there's a good, healthy atmosphere at home within the family, if the husband and wife both love each other and their child, they will be in good spirits... so there'll be a healthy atmosphere throughout the country...

Exactly nine months after Family Contact Day, Morozov will use a lottery to award a prize of a brand new SUV to one of the couples celebrating a new birth that day. "Contact," you know.

I'm trying to think of some pithy one-liner involving Hallmark as a response to this post.

We need to adopt this phrase in our own circles.

"Would you all like to come over for dinner on Saturday evening?"

"We'd love to, but we have a prior engagement of national importance... Saturday's our family contact day."

haha, that's funny...although sad that the government has to bribe people to reap the blessings of kids.

Michelle, this may signal a reversal of the trend. I hope something like it catches on in this country, but I doubt it will.

I find it ironic that Christians who are obedient to the call to be fruitful are so often mocked for being phobic about sex, even while we're lambasted for overpopulating. Obviously, we're doing something right. :)

Joel, that's an irony, and a bitter one.

Maybe the slogan should be used the same way the environmentalists use Earth Day: "Every Day is Family Contact Day."

And car guys think the minivan is dead. :^)
