Tulips everywhere

Wednesday, 7 March 2012

Tomorrow is International Women's Day. It was widely celebrated in the Soviet Union and one would think that after Latvia regained its independence this tradition as one of the symbols of the Soviet regime should fall into obscurity. For some time it did, but now you can see more and more men giving flowers mainly tulips to women on this day. I believe for some people it has to do with nostalgy about the time they were younger, but there are many young people who do this too. So maybe it's just about feeling a little festive and springy after the long winter.

And for me it's a great reason to roam Etsy and look for some tulip inspired jewelry. Here we go! Happy window shopping!
