Traditional rites, music and art elements are widely used in cultural life at present, and they illustrate the connection between the old and young Belarusian culture.

The 8th of March is another national holiday when people show their love and respect for their mothers , grandmothers, sisters and girl-friends. It’s a tradition to present them with flowers and gifts.
