Happy International Women’s Day!

March 8th marks International Women’s Day, and this year’s theme is ending violence against women. This day is mainly celebrated in Russia, Eastern Europe and former Soviet bloc countries.

Each country has their own way of celebrating, but it seems that giving flowers to women on this day is most popular. In Bulgaria and Romania this day is treated as a kind of Mother’s day, so it is common that children give flowers and gifts to their mothers and grandmothers.
