Happy Women’s day!!!

8 03 2011

I actually had forgotten that today it is the International Women’s day, but it was quite funny what a colleague told me: it is a special Chinese holidays today called 妇女节(fùnǚjié), Woman’s day, and it is special because women work only half day today!!

It is actually wrong what wikipedia writes: it is not a full day holidays in China, as officially reported by the government! Still, for once and only probably, China has more free time than Europe!!

I remember school day when we were giving mimosa to the girls.. a quite cute flower! But I actually just learned from wikipedia that what I always called mimosa is another kind of flower: what we were giving to girls is called silver wattle!! 🙂

Anyway, best wishes to all the women of the world!!!
