So, are you’re asking yourself what exactly is International Women’s Day? Well, I’m thrilled you asked! I’m here to answer your questions and play a fun game in the process. International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is a day for unity, celebrations, reflection, advocacy, and action. Each year this occurs on March 8th, and a theme is chosen.
For 2020, the theme is “Each for Equal,” creating an equal gender world. With that being said, I thought it might be a fun idea to choose three people in the current culture. These women embody this ideology, contributing to our society as a female-identifying person. So see if you can guess each wonderful woman before I name them!
It’s here again, Valentine’s Day. A day that people have so many mixed feelings about it’s a wonder it’s still known the world over as the most romantic day of the year. So, what is it about February 14th? Here’s a secret from me to you, I don’t get it either. I don’t have anything against Valentine’s Day mind you, but I don’t see why one day should get to have all the romance and fun. Aren’t you supposed to love the person you’re with year-round?
That’s a trick question, the answer is yes. Don’t think on that too hard.
So, if love is year-round, why shove all your dreams into one day, one day that isn’t even super unique to you and your love by the way. Unless you got engaged or something on Valentine’s in which case congrats. Your anniversary is that much more impossible to forget.
Now, this isn’t to say to not celebrate Valentine’s Day (we do sell flowers after all, I’d get fired for saying don’t celebrate). But I think, maybe, just maybe, you should make Valentine’s Day work for you. Even if you hate it. Or if you’ve never celebrated it before. And even if yes, this year, you’re single, and you wish Cupid would just shove it! Rather than shoot the messenger lets take a look at some of the Valentine’s Day Clichés that have helped this holiday last so long and figure out how they could make any day, even a random Monday, a little more filled with love and joy.
