The Day of the Builder first became a holiday in the Soviet Union on August 12th 1956. According to the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, it was required to be observed on the second Sunday of August.
This day is the traditional "dedication to builders" and has its own set of traditions. New builders should try "a peck of salt", which is bread and salt. They should hold their hands over a fire, in order to understand how hot the work is that awaits him. They should put on a safety helmet and pronounce the words of the oath. Though different regions may have their own traditions and symbols.
