08 May 7 Mother’s Day Celebrations From Around The World
Motherhood is a Vocation Like No Other.
Her days consist of booger wiping, diaper changing, and aiding a scraped knee. She is never off duty- sleep is often interrupted by a child’s cry, she wakes up early and stays up late, and has little time to just herself. And as her children grow, she is a graceful teacher, wise and helpful and always there to listen. Motherhood takes a very special person. And it seems that the experience permeates all cultures and countries. That’s why this Mother’s Day, we took a look at celebrations around the world.
Most countries celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May- this year landing on May 12. These countries include most of Europe, Australia, South Africa, and China. Celebrations often involve hallmark traditions including flowers, gifts cards, etc. However some honor their amazing moms on other days of the year. You’ll even find different names for the holiday and a variety of unique traditions!
Wonderful mothers and days dedicated to their celebration can be found all over the world. Moms are deserving of all the flowers, parades, serenading songs, and meals out that we can offer. So, however you celebrate your mom, make sure that she knows just how much you appreciate her, not only on this day, but every day of the year!
