Soon, it is the second Sunday of May and that means Mother's Day. At least, in a lot of Western countries.

Many (Western) countries have Mother's Day on data in March, April or May. In the Netherlands, Belgium and several other countries Mother's Day is on the second Sunday in May. In France, it is Mother's Day on the last Sunday of May. In Spain is El día de la Madre celebrated on the first Sunday in May. In the UK Mother's Day falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent period, so three weeks before Easter.


To celebrate Mother's Day

In families that celebrate Mother's Day, the mother gets to relax for the whole day. Most mom's get their breakfast in bed and they get gifts. Household tasks should be carried out by the father and the children. Often the younger children at school or at the nursery make handmade gifts. Also on this day is often visited. Flower shops are experiencing an absolute highlight in the week before Mother's Day.


The History of Mother's Day

The worship of mothers is a very old tradition and goes back to the mother cult in ancient Greece. The formal mother cult with ceremonies for Cybele or Rhea, the great mother of the gods, was practised on the ides (15th day) of March. Only in the middle of the 19th century, was Mother's Day in America. The feast day has been in its current form from the United States over the rest of the Western world. In the Netherlands began the tradition around 1925.
