International Women's Day (50/100)

Hey, women! Happy International Women's Day! I guess it's widely celebrated, but in Latvia, it's sort of the more traditional version of Valentine's Day - men buy the women in their lives flowers and chocolates and such. This was an odd display near the Laima Clock, a well-known landmark advertising Laima chocolates. They had a giant chocolate heart frozen in ice, and as I was passing by, they were chipping bits of it off with an hammer and chisel to then hand out to passers-by. As it probably would be anywhere, free chocolate was a big hit.
