There are lots of nice things to look forward to in March, lots of chances to celebrate.
March 8th is woman's day and March 6th is Mother's day in Britain, and this year Easter is in March, so get cracking making cards, cakes, and gifts for the women in your life and letting them know you care. Most people have a mother, sister, daughter, wife, auntie, sister-in-law, girlfriend, cat, dog or something, someone female to love.
The first Sunday in March was chosen as mother's day in Britain because apparently that was the only time girl's in domestic service could go home and visit their mothers.
Women's day, il giorno della donna in Italy has darker origins.
The shops are already full of mimosa and events are being organized to celebrate women.
The Italian singer Fiorella Mannoia sings just the perfect song for women and here it is, for women everywhere, and their men.
