Happy March 8! March 8, 2007Posted by apetrov in Uncategorized.
Today is the International Women’s Day (8 of March). Being called “international,” it is naturally celebrated only in Russia (ok, also in the countries of the former Soviet bloc), which puts it in the same category as the World Series of baseball. It is a day which was designed to be a political holiday (wasn’t they all in the former Soviet Union…), but quickly lost its political flavor and became an official holiday of women and an official day-off. It is also a day when men are supposed to take over house chores and give their ladies flowers. At least for one day in a year…
