Well while we here in America were enjoying our capitalism-sponsored days off, the Russians went ahead and invented a whole new sport - organized vehicle curling, which The Drive expects to be added to the 2022 Winter Games straightaway (along with auto bobsledding).
During the competition, four teams of 10 people each pushed small Russian-made Oka cars towards a target painted on an ice rink.
Of course no brooms were used in this event, but the driver was allowed to steer the vehicle, however only after the other nine team members let go of the auto.
To win the game points were gained by the team's vehicle being closest to the centre of the markings, and extra points could also be gained for cars closest to opponents.
The winners cashed a check of 100,000 rubles - about $1,600.
"It took us a month to prepare for the game", Galina Kirkach, the organizer of the event, told Tass news agency.
Tournament organizer Galina Kirkach, a auto insurance agent, said he was inspired by the large number of accidents caused by black ice in Russian Federation.
While many remained bewildered by both the goal and inspiration for the spectacle unfolding in front of them, there is a logic to the sport of auto curling, well, sort of.
Curling! Unless you bleed Red Green and caught your lunch in an ice fishing hut, you may have no idea how it works.
