International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated around the world on March, 8 every year. It is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women. Started as a political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries (primarily Russia and CIS). In some celebrations, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love by giving presents to the women around them in a way somewhat similar to Mother’s Day and St Valentine’s Day mixed together. In others, however, the political and human rights theme as designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.
The IWD is also celebrated as the first spring holiday, as in many countries tho first day of March is considered to be the first day of the spring season. There exists a special tradition on this day, according to which men should send flower baskets and send gifts to the women in their lives – mothers, wives, girlfriends, daughters, colleagues, etc. Depending on the relations with the women men send romantic gift boxes as well as classic gift boxes. In some countries (e.g. Romania) this holiday is also observed as an equivalent of Mother’s Day, where children also give presents to their mothers and grandmothers.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Macedonia, Poland, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Serbia the custom of giving flowers to women still prevails. Women sometimes receive gifts from their employers, colleagues and business associates too. It is mostly such classic gifts as chocolate baskets, fruit baskets, wine baskets or gourmet baskets. School children often bring flowers or small gifts for their teachers as well.
