Are You Ready for International Women’s Day?

1. March 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

International Women’s Day, a holiday celebrating women around the world, is exactly one week from today. Though IWD is relatively unknown in Western countries, the March 8 holiday is very important to women in the Former Soviet Union. Here’s a brief overview of this significant holiday and how you can ensure your Russian lady has a very happy International Women’s Day.

 

What is International Women’s Day?

Though International Women’s Day began as an expression of women’s solidarity, the holiday is now more a celebration of women in general. On IWD, men honor women for their beauty, femininity, and mothering skills by presenting traditional gifts like flowers, chocolate, perfume, and more. Breakfast in bed and a day’s respite from household chores are also treats Russian women enjoy on this special day. Though International Women’s Day has been called a mix of Mother’s Day and St. Valentine’s Day, the holiday is not exclusive to mothers, wives, or sweethearts. Men honor all women on March 8, so daughters, sisters, friends, and co-workers receive tokens of appreciation as well.

 

Make the Holiday Special for Your Lady

One easy way to make your lady feel special on International Women’s Day is to send her a gift. The HotRussianBrides gift shop offers a wide variety of gifts, including flowers, candy, jewelry, and spa sessions so there’s sure to be something your lady will enjoy.
