This day is widely celebrated in Russia. It is not only an official public holiday, it is probably also the most touching day in the calendar when men across the whole country present all women (mothers, grandmothers, daughters, teachers, doctors, coworkers, classmates...) with flowers and gifts. On the 8th of March the streets of Russian cities are literally flooded with flowers.
It is also the time of numerous performances dedicated to this day. #russianmusic #russianforsi
