As it says in the article, I didn't know this holiday existed but I love it.

It's fun when all the husbads and sons come to pick up the ladies - they are really poked fun at (in the nicest possible way...) by all the ladies.
Ive attached a couple of photos of our Womens Day Supper in2007. The momosa can be seen on the supper table too.
The basket has the individual buttonholes.
Oh, and before you ask - I'm the one wearing glasses (and looking startled) down at the far end of the table...
The last one is what we had just eaten for our sweet.... eat your hearts out. It was delicious...

And now it seems that in USA this day is not known.
In Italy this day just turned into a commercial event and I'm not particularly interested to celebrate.
BTW I'm glad other people do, it was not intended to polemize, here in my town women just go crazy on that day.

Oh and Ada..
I do understand how you feel. I feel the same about Christmas.. I really don't care to celebrate it for personal reasons.
