8th March is International Women’s Day, something relatively new in the UK, but a celebration I grew up with as a child. In Romania Mother’s Day is something new. I think both of them should be celebrated, especially as Women’s Day should be a celebration of us, women, regardless of our age and if we have children or not.
In my late teens, I used to go out with my mother on Women’s Day. We would go out for a pizza or at a restaurant, there were special offers, beautiful decor and loads of women celebrating. Women’s Day is quite a big deal in Romania, men might bring flowers for their colleagues, gifts and treats for their wives or partners. In some areas, policemen would stop women drivers in traffic to give them a flower and/or a gift. Have a look at this news from last year, the movie is in Romanian, but there isn’t a real need for the translation.
Today I’m going to the SPA for a massage, not sure what I will do for the rest of the day though. My husband will take charge and spoil me.
