As a child who has former Russian USSR parents, growing up you hear a lot of interesting things. Here are 20 signs only Russian-Americans will understand if you grew up in a Russian home.
1. Costco Is Life.
The whitefish salad at Costco is essentially over a third of Costco’s business. Definitely comes from us Russians. Your dad refuses to eat much else for any meal.
3. Your Mom Makes Your Friends Wear A Tapochki.
4. Rugs Belong On The Wall, Not Floor!
5. The Endless Calls From Relatives Every B-day Wising You Shaste And Uspech.
6. All Childhoods Were The Same Regardless Of Gender.
Piano, swimming, ballet, gymnastics, and tennis lessons were apart of the agenda.
Smetana in soup with boiled potatoes and mayonnaise in everything. You never realized American families didn’t cook this way until you went over to your friends’ houses.

18. The Soviet Union.
Every time a friend comes over, dinner conversation inevitably turns into life in the Soviet Union.
