Earlier we have returned in the history to find the roots of International Women’s Day which is celebrated on 8th of March. This time we would like to give you a chance to discover the traditions which are related to this day all over the world.
Russia (USSR before) was the pioneer to declare this day as an official holiday and offer its citizens a day off to spend it with their families and beloved people. Traditionally 8th of March is associated with fresh flowers, women’s beauty and spring. All women are supposed to be congratulated on this day, even little girls. The best present for any woman is a bouquet of flowers represents the beauty, a new life of the Earth, spring and Sun warm. A tulip is the best choice!
It is such a pretty day in Russia when you see women walking with their husbands and boyfriends on the street, all carrying lovely bouquets of tulips. It makes an illusion the streets are full of small bright suns!
In Italy Women’s day is not a day off but it is celebrated anyway. But Italian women prefer to meet among themselves, go out or go shopping together spending their evening with their close girlfriends. By the way, all the museums are free for women during the day. The streets of Italian cities and towns are full of flowers: expressive Italians offer their beloved women magnificent bouquets, the traditional flower in Italy on 8th of March is mimosa (this tradition came from USSR).
In Poland Women’s day is traditionally celebrated at home. People don’t have a day off and go to the work as usual but have a get-together in the evening where they congratulate their women and offer them flowers.
