Mother's Day Traditions Around the World


In the United States, churches often hold special services to celebrate Mother's Day. If people are not able to spend time with their mothers on Mother's Day, they often call, send cards, give flowers, or buy gifts to thank them for raising and caring for them. Other people simply give their mothers the gift of time. Helping around the house, making or treating one's mother to a special meal, and spending the day with one's mother are all ways that children show their appreciation.

Countries such as Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May, like the United States. Many other countries, however, observe Mother's Day at a different time of year. Although Mother's Day celebrations around the globe hold the same meaning - honoring one's mother, - several cultures practice traditions that are very different from our own.

In Norway, Mother's Day is observed on the second Sunday in February, while its neighbor, Sweden, celebrates it on the last Sunday in May. The Swedish Red Cross sells tiny plastic flowers prior to the holiday and uses the profits from the "Mother's Flowers" to give vacations to mothers with many children.

Like Sweden, France also celebrates the holiday on the last Sunday in May. However, the French treat Mother's Day much like a family birthday. Big smileExtended families often gather together for a special meal after which the mother is presented with a beautiful cake. Tongue

Other countries that celebrate Mother's Day in the springtime are Lebanon (first day of spring), South Africa (first Sunday in May), and Japan (second Sunday in May.) In Japan, children between the ages of six and fourteen have the opportunity to honor their mother by entering a drawing of her in an art contest. Every four years, winning drawings are collected for an exhibit called "My Mother" which travels all around the world. Not only does this project honor mothers everywhere, but it also educates those who look at the pictures by teaching them how children live in other parts of the world.

Both Argentina and India observe Mother's Day in October. In Argentina, mothers are honored on the second Sunday of the month, while Hindu people in India celebrate Mother's Day with a ten-day festival in early October. This festival is called Durga Puja in honor of Durga, the Divine Mother and most important Hindu goddess in India. According to Hindu legend, the Divine Mother has ten arms, each of which holds a weapon used to destroy evil.

Mother's Day is closely linked to the Church in both Spain and Portugal. On December eighth, the Spanish and Portuguese not only honor their mothers, but also attend religious services to worship the Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus.

Serbian people in parts of Yugoslavia also celebrate Mother's Day, called "Materice," in December. Two weeks before Christmas, boys and girls quietly "tie" their mother up while she is still sleeping. Upon awakening, she gives the children small gifts she has hidden under her pillow in exchange for her "release OuchLOL
