International Women's Day

Dudes and Dudettes, I totally forgot to write about Women's Day (March 8th.) Instead, I wrote about some poor, unlucky cow's tongue's taste.

Today is International Women's Day (Dzien Kobiet.) I think it used to be a bigger deal in Poland than it is now, but flower sales still hold steady. I read about how women used to usually take this day off or leave early (it was in my Polish text book) but I think that's generally discouraged these days (according to my sources.)

The usual gift for one's wife, mother, sister, or dziewczyna, is flowers and chocolate (maybe a trinket or two.)

Here's to all the XXs of the world.

May Day and Mothers' Day are next.
