Yesterday and today it is not uncommon to see men walking around town carrying some flowers and/or chocolate or women carrying some flowers and/or chocolate. Why because it is Women’s Day here in Poland along with several other countries! March 8th is a day they celebrate here in Poland that honors women and girls no matter what their age is. Men give the special women in their lives…wives, girlfriends, daughters, co-workers, classmates, teachers or just their friends, a single flower or a small chocolate to say they appropriate them.
Yesterday, at my usual Friday afternoon hangout at my favorite coffee shop, Beyrouth Cafe surprised me with my first flower.
When I went to pick the girls from school yesterday, they mentioned how much they love this day as “A” is in a class with like 15 girls and 1 boy and he got each of the girls a small chocolate. Then “E” got 2 chocolates from a boy in her class and all the other girls only got 1! Not sure if I should be worried or not since she is only 9.
Now did I get anything from my hubby for this special day? You bet I did….A perfect blog post for next week! A 06.30 in the morning wake up from him saying you need to take me to the emergency room now! More about that next week as I got to get back to helping him.
For all my lady readers no matter where you live…
Happy Women’s Day from Poland!
Which would you rather receive, flowers or chocolate? I will take a chocolate in the shape of the flowers and get the best of both worlds!
