Giornata internazionale della donna
I was wondering why there were women and men carrying around little bouquets of mimosa flowers. There were street vendors selling them to those who walked by. And I even saw a couple of little girls holding mimosas too! It wasn't until later that I read it on Google and got a text from my friend saying "Happy Women's Day!" that I finally understood. I had no idea! Here in Italy it's tradition for men to give women yellow mimosas. What a perfect time of year to bring out such a wonderful color to brighten someone's day.
