Hey everyone,

Hope you're all having a happy woman's day, and if you forgot (or just didn't know) it's not too late to do something nice or play it off as "baby, I was waiting for tonight!"

I should've posted this yesterday as a reminder, but here it is anyway!

To all the wives, girlfriends, S/Os.... HAPPY WOMAN'S DAY!!!

If the government is going to force me to exercise my "right" to health care, then they better start requiring people to exercise their Right to Bear Arms. - "Where's my public option rifle?"

In case anyone besides me was thinking "HUH? Women's Day?" I looked it up.

International Women's Day

International Women's Day (8 March) is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.

International Women's Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men. In ancient Greece, Lysistrata initiated a sexual strike against men in order to end war; during the French Revolution, Parisian women calling for "liberty, equality, fraternity" marched on Versailles to demand women's suffrage.

The idea of an International Women's Day first arose at the turn of the century, which in the industrialized world was a period of expansion and turbulence, booming population growth and radical ideologies.

Happy International Women's Day.. (F)

For those that are curious here are all the national Russian / US holidays:

http://www.consulrussia.org/Protocol/holidays_engl.html

But let's face it. We live in America and shouldn't we celebrate and acknowledge US holidays? Or are we responsible for all the ones on the list I posted?

There should be no hard feelings if you were ignorant of a foreign holiday. We have our equivalent, mother's day I suppose, but it requires being a mom and not just a "woman" in general.

In Russia it is a big holiday. Anyone know why we don't have such a holiday here?

From my experience it seems March 8th is the most important day for Russian women (except maybe for their birthday.) If you overlook Valentine's Day it doesn't seem to be a huge big deal, but if you forget March 8th then look out!

Anyway it's all good because us guys get our day next week on the 14th! http://www.steakandbjday.com/ :thumbs::dance:

You clearly do not know my wife. All of them matter :) She has managed to forget about "Army Day" though. (Russian Men's day for those who don't know, it was last month.)

Kidding aside, Women's day was great this year. I suprised Галина with flowers in the morning, made dinner, and a few other things. Not really out of the ordinary, but it was a fun day. I skipped Russian class yesterday too, and we went to the beach.

I guess I am the devil, I knew it was women's day but did nothing since I didn't really know what to do!

We did go to Social Security where we were informed Оля is authorized to work! :o

We talked at night and I said, I did not know what to do, she says flowers....anything...so after the talk I walked to the circle K across the street and bought a feather rose and a package of Resse's peanut butter cups!

That seemed to be enough for her! :)
