A Russian governor is urging Russians to take Wednesday off to have sex and procreate. If you have a baby exactly 9 months later on Russia's National Day, you can win prizes! While unwed moms are still eligible for prizes, married couples will qualify for the best prizes.
"This year a record 78 babies were born on June 12 at the main hospital in the regional capital of Ulyanovsk, beating the 2006 total of 26, said chief doctor Andrei Malykh.
"The scheme is working. People want the prizes," he said."
