March 8 is Women's Day! Stars0 reviews (Do you like this day? Rate it!)

Women's Day March 8 is International Women's Day, originally called International Working Women's Day. In different regions, the focus of the celebration ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political, and social achievements. On this day it is customary for men to give the women in their lives ? mothers, wives, girlfriends, daughters, colleagues, etc. ? flowers and small gifts. In some countries (such as Bulgaria and Romania) it is also observed as an equivalent of Mother's Day, where children also give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

You can celebrate this day with children by celebrating the women in their lives. Read books with strong female characters, and then make a card for grandma or mom!
