Women's Day is about to arrive, an international anniversary since 1977. But do you know why it is celebrated on March 8? And do you know why mimosa was chosen as a flower to give as a gift?
In reality, talking about a party is not entirely appropriate, as some theories argue that on this very date the workers of a textile industry were killed by a fire during a demonstration.
However, following the historical events, until 1917, the National Women's Day was celebrated on different dates in all the different nations. Then during the Russian Revolution, precisely on March 8, Russian women organized a demonstration to demand the end of the war and from that moment on this date was chosen to commemorate the conquests of women.
Mimosa, on the other hand, is an all-Italian tradition, born after the Second World War.
It was chosen for practicality as it has a very low cost and blooms in early March. But not only! In fact, yellow is a color that expresses strength, vitality and joy and, despite its apparent fragility, it is a flower that grows even on the most difficult soils.
Perfect qualities to represent the figure of the woman!
And this wonderful flower could not be missing in our garden!
