Is it already International Women’s Day?

When I went to the Google search today, I saw this

doodle knitting scarf

and thought “oh, it must be International Women’s Day“, because what else could the knitting of a scarf with a glove symbolize.

To my surprise, Google had something else in mind: they use this doodle to celebrate the first day of winter. I was briefly ashamed because of my stereotypical thinking about the activities of women in their spare time. But only very briefly, so don’t worry.

You will most likely find me in the forest, next to the lake, reading a book. Just follow the cigar smoke!

    Der Internationale Frauentag ist der 8. März. Für den Winteranfang finde ich das Stricken eines Schals gelungen!

    A comment on the solstice – being from Alaska, we pay great attention to such things because the change in light is so extreme. I am in Mexico now, and a women said to me ” This is the longest night of the year for you Alaskans.” And I said, ” We never think of it as the longest night, it is always the shortest day.”

    As with everything, it’s all a matter of perspective.
