Day for Women's Rights & International Peace

International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women.

In 1975, during International Women's Year, the United Nations began celebrating International Women's Day on 8 March. Two years later, in December 1977, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States, in accordance with their historical and national traditions. In adopting its resolution, the General Assembly recognized the role of women in peace efforts and development and urged an end to discrimination and an increase of support for women's full and equal participation.

International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

International Women's Day

International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

International Working Women's Day

In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and Valentine's Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.

Middle Name Pride Day

Today’s name celebration requires honesty and boldness. Tell three people who don’t already know it what your middle name is (even if it’s Egbert).

National Peanut Cluster Day

March 8 is National Peanut Cluster Day!

As winter winds down and spring is about to burst forth, there’s no better time of year to celebrate this sweet cluster of peanutty goodness.

Why do peanut clusters get their own holiday? Well, I’d have to say it’s because so many people love crunching on the good taste of peanuts. Most foods in America have their own day set aside for celebration and sometimes we don’t need much more of a reason to celebrate, do we?

So what is a peanut cluster? It’s nothing more than a crunchy bundle of peanuts held together by melted chocolate.

Peanut clusters are super simple to make. You melt some chocolate and then toss with your favorite brand of de-shelled peanuts. The more peanuts you use, the more crunchy and nutritious your snack will be, since peanuts are a powerhouse of protein.

Then stir the chocolate and peanuts together and place in rounded “clusters” on a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. If you want them to harden quickly, put them in the freezer or refrigerator and wait until the chocolate becomes solid. Otherwise, let them harden into mounds at room temperature. Presto! You’re on your way to a festive celebration of National Peanut Cluster Day.

To take your applause for peanuts and peanut clusters to the next level, why not try baking this Chocolate Cluster—Peanut Butter Cake?

If you love peanuts, peanut butter and chocolate all in one place, you’ll have a stunning and delicious way to celebrate National Peanut Cluster Day!
