Wonders of Women’s Day

HÀ NỘI — In Việt Nam, people celebrate woman’s day twice a year. Two whole days off from the drudgery of catering for men’s needs! Lucky ladies.

They observe Vietnamese women’s day on October 20 and international women’s day on March 8. Numerous events are being held by organisations nationwide on both days.

On those days, males are traditionally supposed to send gifts to the women in their lives, including grandmothers, mothers, aunts, friends and colleagues. Before the days, many boys wrack their brains to find gifts that can impress the women.

Some of these gifts and well wishes went viral on social media after Vietnamese Women’s Day last Saturday.

For example, the male students at Class 12A12 of Mạc Đĩnh Chi High school in the northern city of Hải Phòng gave their female classmates cobalt blue dép tổ ong (beehive slippers).

The slippers are very popular in Việt Nam, especially for males. The slippers were placed by the seats of every girl in the class, along with snacks as gifts. Great payback for being able to copy their homework all year, I’m sure.

Moreover, a girl from Chemistry-specialising class shared a greeting card with a wish written by her male classmate that: “Wish you laugh out loud as if having inhaled N2O [Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas] , as light as hydrogen H2 [ hydrogen - the lightest element ever], as strong as N2 [ nitrogen] and as gentle as H20 [water]. Wish you health and hard study so that you can understand Newton’s binomial.” — VNS
