• International Women’s Day in Russia and Countries of the Former Soviet Union

    Happy-International-Womens-Day-March-8March 8 is when women in Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union are showered with love, affection, flowers, chocolates, and other wonderful things. March 8th is International Women’s Day and it’s one of the most popular holidays in Russia and other Russian speaking countries. It is also the busiest and by far the most lucrative day for the florists in that part of the world. 

    This holiday emerged as a political celebration to symbolize the fight of women from all over the world for their rights and their equality with men.

    Political background of March 8th

    Over time, International Women’s Day lost its political meaning and simply became a women’s holiday in Russia and other countries of the former USSR. It is now such a big public holiday that it’s just referred to simply as “the 8th of March”. March 8th is a recognized public holiday so many workers have a day off and spend time enjoying the special holiday spirit of that day.  

    March 8th is a very special holiday for every woman in Russia. This day can be roughly compared to Mother’s Day in the rest of the world, except that it celebrates all women – mothers, daughters, sisters, teachers, grandmothers, female colleagues and so on. It’s a tradition to pamper women on this day. Men express their love and appreciation to the women around them.  On this day, Russian men and women bring gifts and flowers to all the significant women in their lives and tell them “C vos’mym Marta!” (Happy March 8th!).
