First, it comes from the girl's day of Guanggong

In 1991, Guangdong Institute of technology, the predecessor of Guangdong University of technology, under the specific environment of more men and less women in engineering colleges, took "caring for girls" as the purpose, and guided girls to pay attention to their own ideological quality, moral cultivation, cultural connotation, business ability, mental health and other comprehensive quality improvement through carrying out high-grade and high-quality humanistic activities.

It is said that on the international women's day on March 8, college girls don't want to call themselves women, and they don't want to give up women's holiday privileges. I don't know who proposed it. Since then, there has been women's day. According to a popular saying that "girls and women are only one day away", everyone calls March 7, the day before March 8, as "girls' day."

3、 Valentine's Day derivatives

Chinese Valentine's Day (the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar) and Western Valentine's Day (February 14 every year) are in the winter and summer holidays, and the most indispensable thing on campus is love. Therefore, girls' Day was born. On this day, the boy confesses to the girl who has been deeply in love for a long time, or the boys celebrate the festival for the girl, looking for the girl who makes his heart beat.

Time for girls' Day

In many colleges and universities, March 7 is the day, while in some universities it is a week or even a month. Guangzhou workers' day, the pioneer of girls' day, is held in the third week of November every year, and the time is one week.

Foreign girls' Day

In foreign countries, in addition to the 38 women's day, some countries also have girls' festivals, such as: Japanese girls' day

In Japan, every year, March 3 is the happiest day for girls, because it is the traditional "girls' Day" in Japan. Girls' Day is also called 'Peach Blossom Festival'. In the past, girls' Day was on March 3 of the old calendar (about a month later than March 3 of the Gregorian calendar), when peach blossom was in full bloom, so it got its name. Setting up dolls at home is a traditional celebration of girls' day. On this day, all families with girls will set up a ladder shaped doll rack in the living room, and put various dolls (dolls) in Japanese kimonos to celebrate the healthy growth of girls. These little puppets have their own production, but also bought. As long as a Japanese girl is born, her parents, grandparents, relatives and friends will give her a set of exquisite and beautiful dolls. A set of puppets, generally 15, including the emperor and queen, three palace ladies, five musicians, two ministers and three guards. These little dolls have different postures and are lifelike. Today's Japanese girls usually don't wear kimonos (traditional Japanese clothing). But on the girl's day, they all put on beautiful kimonos, and invited their closest partners. They all sat around the couple's stand, chatting and playing to enjoy the festival.
