The Ultimate Guide to Celebrating Mother's Day!

Mother's Day is a globally recognised celebration of mothers, celebrated on the first Sunday in May in Portugal and Portuguese-speaking African countries, but on the second Sunday in May in most countries. During this time, people express their love and appreciation for their mothers through gifts, gestures and spending time together. The tradition of celebrating mothers has deep historical roots. In ancient Greece and Rome, festivals were held in honour of maternal deities. In 17th century England, Mother's Day was celebrated during Lent, with parishioners returning to their "mother" churches. Similarly, in Britain, Mother's Day, known as Mothering Sunday, originated in the early 17th century as a day off for domestic servants and apprentices to visit their mothers and home churches. In the United States, the modern Mother's Day originated in the 19th century, when activists such as Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis campaigned for a day dedicated to mothers to promote peace and women's activism.

Mother's Day is a celebration full of symbolism, primarily representing the love, care, dedication and sacrifice of mothers around the world. It is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate mothers' unconditional love for their children, to express gratitude for their fundamental role, to acknowledge their hard work and dedication in raising and caring for families, to strengthen family and emotional bonds, and to honour and cherish these precious ties. In short, Mother's Day is an opportunity to celebrate maternal love and reflect on the fundamental role of mothers in our lives.

Prepare a personal treat: Instead of just buying a gift, it suggests making something personal and meaningful, like a handwritten letter or a homemade gift.

Creating memories together: through activities such as walks, picnics, cooking classes, or movie sessions.

Showing appreciation for mothers all year round, not just on Mother's Day, through daily gestures, words of affection, and quality time together.

Relax and pampering: the chance to relax and take care of themselves on their special day, whether that be at a spa, doing yoga, or having quiet time at home.

Involve the whole family: Involving all the family in the celebration to make the day more meaningful and create lasting memories for everyone.

Connect yourself. Even if your mother is no longer around, there may be other maternal figures in your life that you want to honour on Mother's Day, such as grandmothers, aunts, older sisters, godmothers or close friends who have played important maternal roles, or share your happiest memories with your children or nephews

Happy Mother´s Day
