45 years ago Yuri Gagarin was the first person in space. It's interesting to think that in the 60's, 70's, and 80's we would not have considered celibrating this day. But times are different. The cold war is over and there are "Yuri's Night" parties popping up all over the nation. As an interesting spin on these parties, "Yuri" is a Japanese slang term for lesbian sex. With that in mind, celebrate "Yuri's Night" as you see fit (and send me pictures).
