8 of March – Women’s day

What Bulgarians are doing on 8 of March

On 8 of March Bulgarians bring spring flowers to the women in the office, teachers, wife, mother.

One of the best and most popular Bulgarian poems written in the name of the mother:

Thank you, mummy!

Thank you, mummy!
for your kindly hug,
for your mother’s help
and mother’s work.

Thank you in addition
for my sunny day,
for your nightly carries,
when you stay awake.

For your tender shield,
for your gentle voice,
for everything, my mummy dear,
accept my special thanks!

Assen Bossev (1913-1997)
