International Women's Day!

Hi.....Have I missed something? I had never heard of this day until a friend from Europe told me about March 8th. It's like Mother's Day only it's a celebration for all women, young and old, married or single. The men in their lives fix breakfast and give flowers and candy, etc. I googled it and apparently it's a big day all over the world for women of all ages. So....celebrate ladies...and if there's a man in your life....he is supposed to spoil you tomorrow.

Oh....and there is an International Men's Day, too. It's Nov. 19th I believe.

International Women's Day has been a thing for years.
Although here it is usually observed with speakers, panel discussion, take-back-the-night walks and other celebrations of women.
I have been to lots of those kind of events.
Never, ever have I thought of it (or experienced it) as a commercial flower/candy day.
I like flowers and candy --- might need to leave some big hints.

Forgot to add. No matter how you do it, celebrate!
