    Default International Women's Day - 8th March

    In case any of you didn't know, today is International Women's Day!

    It's described in Wikipedia as "similar to Western Mother's Day and St Valentine's Day mixed together."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interna..._Women%27s_Day

    It's a great opportunity to spoil your ladies; especially if you forgot Valentines!

    The day is particularly popular in Russia, so my Russian Wife will be expecting some pampering. That's alright though, because you get what you receive and 23rd Feb was the equivalent Mens' Day!

    Well, 23rd Feb is actually Defender of the Fatherland Day and is very specific to Russia. However, it's a holiday that I don't mind the Wife observing even away from Russian soil!

    I must remind Larisa about this day, she has not mentioned it in the past, or I don,t remember her having done so.

    I of course completely forgot and got into trouble with my Russian wife! :-(

    When we lived out in Russia it was a huge day and everyone in the office was expected to buy flowers for all of the women in the company.
