When you see abundance of flowers selling on the streets and in every possible shops in Bosnia & Herzegovina, it is very apparent to all that Women’s Day has arrived. Valentine’s Day is celebrated here as well as Teachers’ Day but this is the day to celebrate not just with mothers, teachers, but with all women in each individual’s respective life.
Traditionally, it is the most celebrated amongst the three events. Flowers are given customarily to women. Gifts are sometimes given instead. Flowers don’t come in bouquet forms necessarily. They also come in little pots. Working women sometimes are given gifts from their employers. School children usually bring small gifts to their teachers. Or in our case, parents with children in the same class got together to get gifts for the class teachers. It is always a great excuse to visit one’s favourite chocolate boutique! 😉
I was most delighted to receive a red rose from one of the cafes I regularly frequented. 😊
What better way to start a day than with a great coffee, catching up with lady friends and receiving a rose @ one of your favourite cafe!
Wishing all ladies A HAppy Women’s Day! 💋
