Happy International Women's Day, 8th March!

Do you have any plans for today? Going out with the girls or are you having a calm night at home?

Whatever you choose to do just enjoy yourself and have an amazing evening.

International Women's Day was originally named International Working Women's Day. It is marked on March 8 every year. In different countries the focus on the celebration ranges from celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues etc. with flowers and small gifts. In some countries the women's day has the equivalent status of Mother's Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

Happy International Women's Day!

I come from Bulgaria where the day is very popular. I got flowers and little presents from friends, family and boyfriends. The day is simply an occasion for men to express their love for women. I had amazing celebrations until I came to Denmark. In Denmark, the day is more like a feminism celebration, it is all about the women's achievements in social, political economical aspects and rights. I do not receive flowers any more, except from my boyfriend.:)

If you still do not have a plan for the evening and you would like to be a part of an event that is happening on 8th March, I found a website where you should just type in the country and and you can find out if there are any events in the city you live in.
