Every year, China celebrates International Women's Day on this date. However, its slightly different from the day's original focus of celebrating women's economic, political, and social achievements.
Women's Day has become a celebration for men to express their love for women in a manner similar to a combination of Valentine's Day and Mother' s Day, many Chinese in cities celebrate these two holidays, which have been introduced from Western countries.
Women's Day has now become a day for stores and companies to hold great sales for women's products. On this day, many Chinese men buy presents for their mothers, wives, and even daughters. Most women enjoy a half-day holiday and they like to shop during that time.
On Women's Day, women receive special treats. For example, female employees receive a half-day holiday, enjoy other festivities, such as a dinner party, a spa treatment, or a jaunt.
These and other Traditional Chinese practices all form part of TCM, each adding a little to the history and methodology of Acupuncture and Herbs.
