International Women's Day in Moscow, Russia
During International Women's Day in Russia our loved ones get a little "refund" for all their hard work. They can finally rest a little since - and it's up to their men to carry the household burden!
8th of March isn't a global holiday - and it's a shame. Some countries celebrate "Mother's Day" - but I think it got the widest recognition only in Russia!
We buy gifts and bouquets, dress nice and act like real gentlemen. We wine'em, we dine'em - and some bath their women in champaigne! In short - we're being really good boys!
Have Russian girlfriend? Get ready to wash the dishes, clean the house, serve her breakfast right to the bed - and of course, don't forget to buy a beautiful bouquet!
Don't know what flowers to pick? No better choice than mimosas! They are the 8th of March special, and your woman will surely be happy to get some!
If you ain't sure - pick roses, these flowers will always do the trick - but be creative and ask the florist to put in all kinds of decoration!
Yep, our women expect a good treatment - and you must agree they have every right to! I suggest you plan ahead because you really don't want to mess this day up! The exact schedule is up to you, but one thing is for certain - she must feel really special!
Take here out for a walk, order a table for two in a cozy Moscow restaurant, or just spend a romantic evening together - it doesn't really matter as long as she feels truly loved!
International Women's Day origin is Communist - but that time, they really made something good! Our women work so hard to keep us happy!
I believe they deserve good compensation at least once a year. And if you don't know what I'm talking about - try to be a housewife for just one day!
I guarantee you'll get totally exhausted!
...that's why the 8th of March is so important when you're married. No better time to refresh the relationships with your spouse. Come on, be honest - how many times have you been tender with her this year? More than 3? Wow, you must be really romantic!
So what are you waiting for? Do this now!
But it doesn't end with romance when you're married, because somebody's got to clean the dishes. Think of it - most men can't force themselves to do this even once - and your wife's been into that since the day you became a couple!
Surely, you go to work, but I it's not *that* boring and monotonous! And if she's got little kids on her back - you've got to help her out! So roll up your sleeves and put on your favorite apron because boy we gonna get dirty!
...but it's soooo worth it! Once you're finished - she'll kiss you on the cheek and say how she needed that rest. And then - look her in the eyes and say those 3 magic words every woman dreams to hear - "I love you".
Hmm, maybe we should do this more often?
