Hot Russian Brides Celebrating January Name Days

Make sure to note these upcoming name days in January. Are you chatting with a Russian woman who shares one of these names? You may want to send her a special email or gift to help her celebrate this important day. 

She will be impressed that you took the time to learn about her and her culture. Name days are also known as Angel Days since many Russian women are named after saints. 

Ulyana – January 3

Ulyana is a variant of the Latin name Julia. It means “youthful” and women sharing this name usually do exude a “young at heart” type of attitude. She may also go by a similar name like Uliana. This name was very common in the past and has recently seen a growing popularity again. 

Anastasia – January 4

Anastasia is a very popular name with many different variants. A Russian woman with this name may also go by Anna, Nastya, Tasia, Stasha, or many others. Ask her which nicknames she prefers! Anastasia means “resurrection” and is commonly associated with the Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia, who was the youngest daughter of Nicholas II, the last Russian czar. 

Evgenia – January 6

Evgenia is from the Greek origin name Eugenia. It means “well-born, noble”. Women with this name tend to be very loyal and understanding. 

Klavdia – January 6

Klavdia is from the Roman female name Claudia. 

Lidia – January 19

Maria – January 19

Maria is another very common name with a long European history. It is said to mean “rebellious” so a Russian lady sharing this name may be feisty! 

Tatyana – January 25

Tatyana is another name with many different spellings, but this day is very popular among students with all names. Tatyana Day is also known as Students’ Day and is greatly celebrated because on January 25th, 1775, Empress Elizabeth signed the decree to establish the Moscow University. 

Nina – January 27

Nina may be the short form of the Russian lady’s name Annina, meaning “favor, grace”. 

Ksenia – January 31

Ksenia is a Ukrainian and Russian form of the Greek name Xenia, which means “hospitality” in Greek. 

Some Russian ladies’ names are celebrated on several different days throughout the year. Some may celebrate them all; some may not even know when they are! By learning and researching Russian and Ukrainian traditions and history, you will have more to chat about with your Russian ladies and that will help create meaningful relationships. You may even end up teaching her a thing or two!

im interviewing someone and these are the question that i would like you to answer. thanks so much
1. was your wedding arranged or did you get to choose your partner?

8. was a financial gift given to eather of the bride or grooms family
9. what about the bride and groom
10. and if you can, compare your wedding to an African wedding
whats similar, whats different?
anything special?

I chose my own partner for my marriage. It was a religious ceremony in a Methodist church. About 250 friends and family attended. People dressed up; women wore skirts, dresses, suits, etc. and men wore suits or at least dress shirts and ties with dress pants. We said our vows, lit a “unity candle,” kissed, and walked outside where we greeted guests after the ceremony. Afterwards, there was a reception at the country club. There were appetizers such as vegetables, dip, cheese, crackers, fruit, and chocolate. A sit-down dinner of chicken parmesan was served, with a side of new potatoes and greens. Dessert was wedding cake and cream cheese mints. My husband removed the garter from my leg (placed there before the wedding for this purpose) and threw it over his shoulder into a group of single men. (The one who caught it was supposed to be the next to get married.) I threw my bouquet of flowers over my shoulder to a group of unmarried women, and the one who caught it was supposed to be the next to get married. Then the man who caught the garter put it onto the leg of the woman who caught the flowers. Guests brought gifts with them to the reception and placed them on a big table. Some brought cards with money in them. The average monetary gift was $25, but many gave $50 and a few gave $100. My family and my husband’s family did not exchange gifts. My family paid for the wedding and reception. My groom’s family paid for the wedding rehearsal party the night before the wedding. I cannot compare my wedding to an African wedding, as I have no idea what one of those is like. I hope this helped you.

Japanese Brides

If you want to meet Japanese women, don’t be a “mama’s boy”

Do some men really want a woman who reminds them of their mother?

You know the type: “Mama’s boys” – the spoiled, pampered men who cannot seem to break away from their mothers. Don’t get me wrong, mothers are great – mine sure is – but there comes a point in your life when you have to grow up.

Yet some Japanese men seem destined to be “Mama’s boys” for life. And why would they ever want to change?After all, for these men, their mothers have cooked their food, done their laundry, cleaned their rooms, and basically done everything for them their whole life. Who would want to give that up? So instead of growing up and learning to take care of themselves without Mom, they simply look for a woman who will do the same kinds of things for them.

A friend of mine who was in a relationship with one of these mama’s boys saw the relationship end because her man’s mom did not think she (my friend) would make a proper wife, and since his mom did not approve, that was the end of the relationship. How crazy is that?

Think of all the good women out there who are passed over because the man’s mom does not approve of her for some reason. Sometimes the man will never get married because his mom does not want to let them go, or because she thinks that no woman will ever be good enough for her precious son. So the man spends his life alone and in misery while his mom stays happy (and in control of his life). Men should always honor their mothers, but you shouldn’t sacrifice your entire life just to make your mother happy.

After all, what kind of mother would want her son to give up his entire life and turn his back on romance, just because a woman does not meet up with her requirements? This is a selfish way for a mother to behave – if mothers really love their sons, they will raise them to be strong, independent, and able to build a life with a good woman. Instead of trying to rule and control her son’s romantic life, a mother should teach her son how to treat a woman properly so that he can go on to lead a productive and happy life.

Yet some mothers have programmed their sons to the point that these poor men spend their entire life looking for a woman just like dear old Mom.

Here is a news flash, mama’s boys: there is no other woman on Earth who is going to be just like your mother. If you want to have a real relationship with a woman – especially an independent, emotionally healthy woman – you need to let go of your maternal ties and find a way to stand on your own.

Don’t you think it is kind of weird to want a woman like your mother anyway? I mean, imagine having sex with your mother! Not a pleasant thought. So why do you keep looking for a woman like your mother? Do you not want a woman who is her own person? After all, any good woman is going to run as far away from you as she can get if you keep comparing her to your mother.

Being a mama’s boy might seem cute to a woman at first, but before long, any good woman is going to want a real man. Of course you want your mother and your wife to get along, but when you get married you need to always take the side of your wife, even to the point of defending her against your mother, if necessary. If you are not ready to let go of your mother and be a real man, then you probably are not ready for dating a real woman either.

<!–more–>

Some men who marry Japanese women – whether they’re “Mama’s boys” or not – might find that their mothers have concerns about whether the Japanese woman is going to “fit in” culturally with the rest of the family. For example, Japanese women might marry Indian men, Muslim men, African-American men, Jewish men – and sometimes parents from all of these cultures have their particular concerns about intermarriage. I’ve had some male Jewish friends who havemarried Japanese women, and it’s always interesting to me how often they’ve been able to persuade their Japanese brides to convert to Judaism – even though Japanese women are somewhat non-religious. (I think the men’s mothers might have something to do with influencing these Japanese women’s decisions.)

Bottom line: no matter what culture you’re from or how intense of a “Mama’s boy” you are, when it comes time for you to find a woman (or many women!) to spend your life with, you need to do what is right for you. Ultimately, your mother will be happy for you. Have you known any “Mama’s boys” among your circle of male friends? Why do you think Japanese culture develops so many “Mama’s boys?”

Thailand Bride

Written by Ralph. Posted in Foreign Girls for Marriage

Travel to Thailand and experience Marriage, friendship, dating in thailand

Thai marriage ceremonies between Buddhists are generally divided into two parts: a Buddhist component, which includes the recitation of prayers and the offering of food and other gifts to monks and images of the Buddha, and a non-Buddhist component rooted in folk traditions, which centers on the couple’s family.

In former times, it was unknown for Buddhist monks to be present at any stage of the marriage ceremony itself. As monks were required to attend to the dead during funerals, their presence at a marriage (which was associated with fertility, and intended to produce children) was considered a bad omen. A couple would seek a blessing from their local temple before or after being married, and might consult a monk for astrological advice in setting an auspicious date for the wedding. The non-Buddhist portions of the wedding would take place away from the temple, and would often take place on a separate day.

In modern times, these prohibitions have been significantly relaxed. It is not uncommon for a visit to a temple to be made on the same day as the non-Buddhist portions of a wedding, or even for the wedding to take place within the temple. While a division is still commonly observed between the “religious” and “secular” portions of a wedding service, it may be as simple as the monks present for the Buddhist ceremony departing to take lunch once their role is complete.

During the Buddhist component of the wedding service, the couple first bow before the image of the Buddha. They then recite certain basic Buddhist prayers or chants (typically including taking the Three Refuges and the Five Precepts), and light incense and candles before the image. The parents of the couple may then be called upon to ‘connect’ them, by placing upon the heads of the bride and groom twin loops of string or thread that link the couple together. The couple may then make offerings of food, flowers, and medicine to the monks present. Cash gifts (usually placed in an envelope) may also be presented to the temple at this time.

The monks may then unwind a small length of thread that is held between the hands of the assembled monks. They begin a series of recitations of Pali scriptures intended to bring merit and blessings to the new couple. The string terminates with the lead monk, who may connect it to a container of water that will be ‘sanctified’ for the ceremony. Merit is said to travel through the string and be conveyed to the water; a similar arrangement is used to transfer merit to the dead at a funeral, further evidence of the weakening of the taboo on mixing funerary imagery and trappings with marriage ceremonies. Blessed water may be mixed with wax drippings from a candle lit before the Buddha image and other unguents and herbs to create a ‘paste’ that is then applied to the foreheads of the bride and groom to create a small ‘dot’, similar to the marking sometimes made with red ochre on Hindu devotees. The bride’s mark is created with the butt end of the candle rather than the monk’s thumb, in keeping with the Vinaya prohibition against touching women.

The highest-ranking monk present may elect to say a few words to the couple, offering advice or encouragement. The couple may then make offerings of food to the monks, at which point the Buddhist portion of the ceremony is concluded.

The Thai dowry system is known as the ‘Sin Sodt’. Traditionally, the groom will be expected to pay a sum of money to the family, to compensate them and to demonstrate that the groom is financially capable of taking care of their daughter. Sometimes, this sum is purely symbolic, and will be returned to the bride and groom after the wedding has taken place.

The religious component of marriage ceremonies between Thai Muslims are markedly different from that described above. The Imam of the local mosque, the groom, the father of the bride, men in the immediate family and important men in the community sit in a circle during the ceremony, conducted by the Imam. All the women, including the bride, sit in a separate room and do not have any direct participation in the ceremony. The secular component of the ceremony, however, is often nearly identical to the secular part of Thai Buddhist wedding ceremonies. The only notable difference here is the type of meat served to guests (goat and/or beef instead of pork). Thai Muslims frequently, though not always, also follow the conventions of the Thai dowry system.

Living Dead Dolls – china limbs guard – medical bellyband manufacturer

Origins The first Living Dead Dolls appeared for sale in America in 1998. They were craft dolls individually customised by either Ed Long or Damien Glonek. These customised dolls are called “handmades” by fans and collectors. The first doll was made by Long using one of his mother’s doll kits. He showed the doll to Glonek, and they worked together to make 12 more. After the dolls sold out immediately, Long & Glonek decided to make more for sale. These original handmade dolls were sold exclusively through Glonek’s horror memorabilia mail order company Unearthly Possessions, as well as at horror conventions along the East Coast. It was at one of these conventions, Chiller Theatre, that Mike “Mez” Markowitz, the founder of Mezco Toyz purchased one of the dolls. Mezco subsequently contacted Long and Glonek about manufacturing and distributing the dolls commercially. The first commercial series of Living Dead Dolls, Series 1, was released early in 2001. Since then, new series have been released roughly twice a year. Handmades Handmades(1998-2001) These customised craft dolls were individually created by Ed Long and/or Damien Glonek. The original handmade dolls did not have names, but can be identified by their design and costuming. The following dolls can be linked to dolls which were put into mainstream production: Sadie: A black-haired girl doll in a black dress with a white collar, very like Wednesday Addams.

The handmade Sadie is perhaps the most commonly seen handmade. Posey: A long-haired, usually blonde, girl doll in a long nightgown. Sin: Superficially similar to Sadie, but with a red dress, devil horns and a tail. Bad Habit: A doll dressed as a nun. Eggzorcist: A doll wearing a bunny suit. She was first made as a gift to Ed Long’s then girlfriend, who returned the doll when the relationship broke up. These early handmade dolls have not been made as mainstream Living Dead Dolls as of January 2009: Unnamed witch doll: A doll dressed as a witch, with a pointed hat. Tall Lady: Some handmades used a taller, more adult-figured craft doll. Due to their height, these dolls are called Tall Ladies by collectors. Candy Rotten: The only handmade to have a name, this was a punk doll with a burning heart tattooed on her chest and candyfloss-coloured hair. Handmades (post-2001) After the dolls went into production, it was possible to request custom handmades directly from the creators. These custom handmades originally cost $666 apiece, later increased to $800. A custom handmade was the prize available to anyone who opened one of the five Series 5 blood-spattered chase dolls. In about 2004, Long & Glonek announced on the Mezco message boards that they would no longer accept commissions or make handmades to order, but would instead occasionally offer handmade dolls on eBay to the highest bidder. Living Dead Dolls Living Dead Dolls are 10″ (28cm) tall plastic dolls which are sold in coffin-shaped boxes. Most of the main series dolls come with a death certificate, except for the showbiz-themed Series 5, which had coroner’s reports. The death-date on the certificate is typically that of a significant historical event, or somebody’s birth or death. There is also a short poem about each doll printed on the coffin packaging and/or the death certificate. Series 1 (March 2001) Sadie Sin Posey Eggzorcist Damien Series one was first released in the USA, then later in Japan. There are two differences between these releases. The Japan dolls have a large white Japanese sticker on the bottom of their coffins and they also have holes in their hands just like the later series. However, they sell for the exact same amount and people hardly ever speak of the differences. Limited to about 35000 sets. Series 2 (October 2001) School Time Sadie Kitty Deadbra Ann Lizzie Borden Lou Sapphire Lizzie Borden is the first doll to be explicitly based on a real person, in this case Lizzie Borden. While many of the dolls may appear inspired by specific individuals, only three in the main line are explicitly based on real people. See also Dahlia (series 5) and Bathory (series 15). Limited to about 40000 sets Series 3 (March 2002) Bride of Valentine Sheena Lilith Lottie Schitzo Series 4 (September 2002) Inferno Sybil Lulu Ms Eerie Macumba Series 5 (March 2003) Jezebel Siren Dahlia Hollywood Vincent Vaude Dahlia is the second doll from the main line to be explicitly based on a real person, in this case Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia victim. To commemorate Series 5, a chase doll in a closed-casket version was randomly inserted into factory-sealed cases. This contained one of the regular Series 5 dolls in a black-and-white colorway. Unless the casket was opened, the doll it held was a mystery. One of each chase doll was blood-spattered. This was a golden ticket that won the finder a free handmade doll. A limited edition of 500 sets of sealed open-casket versions was made available only to members of Mezco’s online club. Series 666 (2003) Jinx Dottie Rose Hush Revenant Calico Isaac Dottie Rose was available with or without eyebrows, in a 50:50 ratio. Each doll came with a pet. Isaac is the only doll to be stuffed. Series 7 (2004) Lust (Mistress Demonika) Vanity (Madame Dysmorphic) Wrath (Bad Bette Jane) Envy (Eve-A-Go-Go) Sloth (Bed Time Sadie) Greed (Miss McGreedy) Gluttony (Vulgar the Obscene) This series was inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins. Series 8 (2004) The Lost Hollow Grace of the Grave Faith Angus Littlrot The Lost was made in two versions. The “Black Lost” wore a black dress, and the “White Lost” wore a white dress. There were two “Black Losts” to each “White Lost.” Angus Littlrot had a sack over his head which covered one of three face variants. Series 9 (2005) Elisa Day Toxic Molly Dawn Blue Purdy Elisa Day was based on the song Where the Wild Roses Grow by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds featuring Kylie Minogue. A set of limited-edition glow-in-the-dark variants was exclusive to the Mezco Direct store. This was the first series to have a re-designed body articulation system, with ball and socket joints at shoulders, hips and neck. It is the first and only all-female series. Series 10 (2005) Mildread Demonique Arachne Tina Black Wolfgang To mark the tenth series, the lettering on the clear coffin lids was red. Series 11 (2006) Maggot Killbaby Jubilee Rain Isaiah Series 12 (2006) Chloe Tessa Frozen Charlotte Cuddles Ezekiel Series 13 (2007) Evangeline Iris Morgana Simone Jacob To mark Series 13 each doll was based on a different superstition. For example, Evangeline had a broken mirror. Series 14 (2007) Alison Crux Jasper Daisy Slae Dee K Gregory Series 15 (2008) Death Bathory Gypsy Flamingo Judas Bathory is the third doll from the main line to be explicitly based on a real person, in this case Countess Elizabeth Bthory. A set of limited-edition variants was exclusive to the Mezco Direct store. Only 300 sets were available worldwide. Series 16 (Halloween 2008) Eleanor Pumpkin Mishka Squeak Isabel This series was based on Halloween trick-or-treaters.
