8th March-Mother's Day

three roses

The 8th of March is the International Woman's Day (IWD). This day commemorates women's rights and peace. In many countries this day is also an equivalent of Mother's Day. All the ladies receive presents, flowers, poems, text messages and simply kind words and wishes, children also give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers and their teachers as well. This is the day when mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues get the particular attention from men and positive emotions are felt

everywhere. In Romania, it is usual, at the night of 8 March, groups of women celebrate in "women-only" dinners and parties.

In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Serbia the custom of giving women flowers still prevails.

On this day I wish every mother, grandmother and woman
Happy Mother's Day and Happy Women's Day!

To My Mother

by Edgar Allan Poe

Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"
Therefore by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than mother unto me,
And filled my heart of hearts, where death installed you,
In setting my Virginia's spirit free.
My mother -- my own mother, who died early,
Was but the mother of myself; but you
Are the mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew
But that infinity with which my wife
Was dearer to my soul that its soul-life.
