Mexico is a country known for its devotion to the family, and no family member is more revered than “Mama”. Every year on May 10th the entire country pays homage to matriarchs with the annual “Dia de las Madres” or “Mother’s Day” celebration. Young children create cards and gifts and adults bring flowers and made to their mothers very special dinners and parties. The traditional song “Las Mañanitas” is sung, often as a serenade outside of mother’s house with mariachis for accompaniment. “Mama” is the center of attention and the whole family shows her their appreciation on this very special day. Mothers have been honoured throughout the ages around the world, but the first official “Dia de las Madres” in Mexico wasn’t celebrated until May 10th in 1922, as a result of the petitions by Rafael Alducin Bedolla, founder of the newspaper “Excelsior”. We thank him for bringing us such a special day and we thank moms everywhere for all that they do!
