International Women's Day

Today is Women's Day and is celebrated in Italy with mimosas (not the drink). Festa della Donna is celebrated much like Mother's Day where women are given gifts usually along with a bunch of mimosa.

I noticed this yesterday, but didn't get a chance to drop by and say thanks for letting us know about it. With all that women do, this should be promoted more.

I think a gift of mimosas and a mimosa (the drink) would both be glorious

Our women's day is on 9th August, so it was a surprise to me to realise there's an international women's day too. I wonder if there'll ever be a "men's day" to celebrate all the good things our wonderful men do too? (I ow there's lots of Bad Men (and Bad Women) out there, but there's a lot of good men too and we should celebrate them, don't you think?)
