What is International Women’s day?
International Women’s Day is sponsored worldwide by the United Nations. However, the UN did not originate this special celebration. The roots of this celebration goes back to the late 1800’s and early 1900s. It grew from women’s socialist movements and early women’s trade union groups.
The first International Women’s Day was held March 19, 1911. Women socialists and trade unions held an earlier Women’s Day on the last Sunday in February, 1908. The event grew from there, and has been celebrated annually since. The focus is upon women workers, and advancing women’s rights in the workforce, politics and society

What to do …..what to do?
Here are some idea’s that can help you with creating a special evening anytime during the year, don’t feel any pressure to put a years worth of romance together all in one day. Spreading it out during the year can be more powerful and lasting then trying to do it all in one night.
You can do a lot at home – if you have kids ask if they can have a sleep over at a Grandparents house. If you love to cook plan a meal that can be prepared and sampled throughout the evening, have some wine and put on a movie.
If you have kids and they can not go anywhere, ask the Grandparents to come and stay over while you guys go to a Hotel for a night (or two). Find one with a spa if you both like that sort of thing, either a great restaurant or lounge on premises so you can get dressed up and “flirt” through out the evening.
If you only have a few hours check out doing either a day spa such as TEN Spa or Thermea https://www.thermea.ca/en/valentines-day/ some people can not get comfortable with massages or manicure or pedicure all the time, and Thermea gives you the ability to go at you own pace between sauna’s and hot tubs while enjoying being out side.
If you both enjoy being outside, rent some skates at the forks or walk along the river and check out the warming huts.
If you enjoy “wine” or “beer” tasting Winnipeg has seen an increase in craft brewing and some of them have tasting rooms check out http://barnhammerbrewing.ca or for wine check out http://www.piazzadenardi.com/chefs-dinner-wine-tasting-events-calendar/.

Sheila and My Little Secret are a fantastic service, almost like a secret weapon. I was in Winnipeg for a few days on business and was asked by a family member in Toronto to run an errand for them and simply didn’t have time to fit it in to my schedule. A quick Google search led me to My Little Secret. Sheila responded extremely promptly to my late request and was in constant communication throughout so that I understood how her fees and delivery process worked. It was efficient and fantastic value. Highly recommended. I’ve already passed on MLS’s contact info to some locals I met during my trip.
