8th of March - International Women's Day
I am sure a lot of you who are studying Russian and/or have been to Russia know about this wonderful spring holiday. It is somewhat similar to the Mother’s day here in the US, but celebrates all women and girls. It is definitely traditional to congratulate your mom, grandmas, sisters, aunts, cousins, teachers, coworkers but at school you will also see boys congratulating the girls in their class (similar to the Valentine’s tradition in the US) with cards, small gifts or flowers.

It is common at schools for the children to prepare special crafts for their moms, sisters, grandmas, and teachers and then present it to them on the day of. Handmade cards are also very popular.

Tulips, Mimosas and Daffodils are one of the most traditional flowers during this season. Depending on the women in your life it can be a very different celebration: romantic, thankful, respectful, fun.

Not only the guys congratulate the women, other women and girls congratulate each other and celebrate together.

Even if you are not Russian and this is not a holiday you celebrate, take this opportunity to call/visit the women in your life and thank them for being there.
