Have You Wished Your Lady a Happy International Women's Day?

8. March 2013 by Christy 0 Comments

Happy International Women's Day! Did you remember to congratulate your special lady? IWD celebrates the contributions women have made to society, as well as gives men a chance to honor the woman they hold dear. 


Though IWD is a global holiday, it’s particularly popular in Eastern Europe. Ever year on March 8th, millions of Russian and Ukrainian men honor women with flowers, chocolate, candy, and other small gifts. Though some say International Women’s Day is a mix between Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day, all women receive tokens of affection on this special day.


Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych congratulated women on his website today, wishing them a lifetime of health and happiness.


“I sincerely congratulate you on the beginning of spring and on International Women’s Day,” he wrote. “The best flowers of love and respect are for you! I wish you and your families peace, calmness, health and happiness. Let a strong shoulder be always next to you and serve as a reliable support in life.”


Not sure what to do for the special Ukrainian woman in your life? Send a virtual card created especially for IWD, use festive emoticons in chat, or send your lady a International Women's Day gift basket. It's never too late to show that you care!
