Buona Festa della Donna

Hello Ladies, Happy International Women's Day....
or as the Italians say: "Auguri per la festa della Donna"!

International Women's Day is celebrated every year on the 8th of March, to commemorate the murder of 129 women, who were set on fire inside a textile factory in New York in 1908.

While in some countries there are big, political events, in other countries it's just an excuse to go out and have fun.
In Italy women are given yellow mimosas.

(To me this was something new... but a very welcome surprise!
I looooove mimosas)

  1. I wish we had this in Holland too! Maybe each woman should get tulips or so :)
