I do not love this feast because I think we should be celebrated every day…in any case I really like the tradition to offer mimosa flowers to the women in your life.
The mimosa trees start blossoming in the mid of February. (It is the first nature’s sign that winter is turning to his end), therefore there are still many blossoming at the beginning of March.
It’s amazing: how on March 8th mimosa’s sellers appear all over the city, at every traffic light. Many people just wander with mimosas offering it to the ladies they met.
On March 8 state museums and archaeological sites are free for women (only), in honor of International Women's Day.
