The Mothers’ Day Winner Post

Filed in featured , The Latin Lover , Winners Posted on May 5, 2013 @ 9:00 am 7 comments

Hey Everyone!

Have you ever noticed that although almost all cultures have a day celebrating mothers this isn’t the same day across the world? In Hungary Mothers’ Day is the first Sunday in May, but I know that just in Europe, the British, the French and even the Belgian celebrate it on a different day.

Here moms are usually given flowers and kids surprise them with small gestures like preparing breakfast (and sometimes even bringing it to bed), and when children are small they usually sing some special songs for the occasion.

So knowing me, you know that besides the flowers there will be some home-baked treats as well 😉

So where you are, when is Mothers’ Day celebrated? And what do you usually do? Are there any specific traditions?

And before I take my leave here are this week’s winners:

    Congrats to the winners!

    Sunday, May 12, in the US this year. The celebration sounds about the same–flowers, either a meal out or a home-cooked meal by the kids, etc. No singing, tho. 🙂

    My sister and I are struggling this year–our first without Mom. 🙁

    I kidnap children so their mothers can have some alone time. Which seems like the best present.
