On the 8th March, every year the world celebrates international women’s Day to create awareness about the various facet of atrocities women has been facing from the last many years and what steps need to be taken to fight this unwanted part of the society.
A woman is not less than a male in any aspect; be it mental strength or intellectual strength or her spiritual strength, she has the potential to work actively in every sphere of the life!
There are many important holidays in a calendar year, but my favourite one is March 8th. Everybody knows that it’s an international Women’s Day, but for me it’s a special day. First of all, it’s the beginning of spring, which is my favourite season. The weather is almost always fine on this day. Secondly, people seem to become happier on this day. Women are happy to receive presents and compliments, while men are happy to pay extra attention to their loved ones. None of them is left without a present or special attention on March the 8th. Mothers, grandmothers, sisters, girlfriends, wives, daughters – they are all treated with respect and admiration.
It’s worth mentioning that this holiday originated at the beginning of the 20th century in New York. At first, it was a strike held by the Socialistic Party in support of Ladies’ Working Union. Later on, some of European Socialist Party representatives proposed to celebrate the annual Women’s Day in March and so the tradition began. The holiday was mainly celebrated in communist and socialist countries. In Western countries the observance of the Women’s Day became popular in 1970s. As the time passed, the holiday became more and more popular. Today, it is especially important to go out on this day, to visit the concerts or other performances which set a festive mood. Women receive lots of flowers, postcards and small presents. It’s habitual to buy spring flowers on this day, including snowdrops, daffodils and tulips.
“The fastest way to change society is to mobilize the women of the world.” I would love congratulate women world wide on this special day. Special thank you to my photographer! God bless y’all!
