Okay men: March 8th, International Women's Day is steadfastly approaching and it is a great occasion to let all of your beloved women know that you celebrate and acknowledge their importance in your lives.

March 8th (known as the International Women's Day emerged as a political celebration to symbolize the fight of women from all over the world for their rights, full equality with men, democracy and peace.
As time passed, the political motives of the holiday moved to the background and March 8th simply became a women's holiday in Ukraine and other republics of the former USSR. In Ukraine March 8th is an official public holiday and popular entertainers organize concerts and performances to create a festive mood on the day. The best singers and most talented actors perform songs and poems about love and beautiful women on stage. Several other nations also celebrate, but only a few acknowledge it as an official, non-working holiday. In the West, where Mother's Day falls in May, the 8th of March is typically celebrated by feminist and women's rights groups. Meanwhile as life in Ukraine is different from that in the USA in many ways, the 8th of March is one of the most favoured holidays for many Ukrainian women. Along with New Years, Christmas and St. Valentine's Day, it is also one of the most romantic holidays.
Some people call March 8th a "Ukrainian Valentine's Day" but actually it's quite different. On this day ALL women in Ukraine are given presents, flowers and cards, not just a woman who is a wife or girlfriend. Mothers, mothers-in-law, sisters, daughters,co-workers, friends, and female bosses alike receive equal attention. Unlike Valentines Day this holiday is for women only.
The best way to make this day special for the women in your life, be it a mother, sister, wife, daughter or a friend, is to bequeath her with lots of love, affection, respect. Gifts in the form of flowers, jewellery, and beautiful greeting cards should also to be given on this special day.
