Happy Women's Day
International Women’s Day, March 8, was created to commemorate women’s struggle for social and political rights. In Russia, however, it has lost its political coloring and has become instead a widely-celebrated, festive holiday honoring all women.

On March 7, all business activities in Russia come to an abrupt halt around lunchtime, to resume only on March 9 or 10. On March 7 and 8, you will see women with flowers, usually tulips, everywhere.
