There is a special day for women—International Women’s Day—which is celebrated in the first month of spring on March 8th. One might compare March 8th in Russia with Mother’s Day in the West, although the russian holiday celebrates all women, including mothers, grandmothers, daughters, and girlfriends.
In our community we have a tradition when our children give flowers and gifts to their mothers. Gifts and cards are usually handmade by children.
On the 8th of March 2012 we had Women’s Day Visit to Market Weighton at the Youth Club at the Life Centre for an evening of cultural sharing and celebration.
