March, 8 is women's holiday, a holiday
of spring and attention to the woman.
International Women's Day (8 March) is an occasion marked by women's
groups around the world. This date is also commemorated in Russia
and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When
women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and
by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences,
come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition
that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality,
justice, peace and development.
In Rusia it is the day for all women. Men and boys give women presents
or give them flowers.
There are prepared presents for women or delivered concerts everywhere.
As a rule women can go home early this day. Presents are all around
this day. Maybe it is a free ticket for the cinema or theatre, maybe
it is a concert, sometimes it is a lottery.
There are parties in every home and in every office etc. Everybody
likes the day.
