Happy Mother's Day!

This year in the United States Mother's Day is
Sunday, May 13, 2018

It's a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mother's on society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, yet most commonly in March, April and May. In most countries, Mother's Day is a recent observance derived from the holiday as it has evolved in America.  When it was adopted by other countries and cultures, it was given different meanings, associated to different events (religious, historical or legendary), and celebrated on a different date or dates. Some countries already had existing celebrations honoring motherhood that could be traced back to ancient festivals like the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival to Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration.

Their celebrations have adopted
several external characteristics from the U.S. holiday, like giving carnations and other presents to your own mother.  The extent of the celebrations varies greatly. In some countries, it is potentially offensive to one's mother not to mark "her" day.  In others, it is a little-known festival celebrated mainly by immigrants, or covered by the media as a taste of foreign culture.

We think mother's are special and deserve a day of honor and appreciation.
