Mother’s Day in Mexico

Mother’s Day in Mexico

Mother’s Day is always on a Sunday and this is due to the origins of this holiday being tied to Lent, a Christian tradition. The date of Easter influences when Lent and Mother’s Day are. This year, Mother’s Day follows on May 13th, which is coming up fast. However, if you’re confused about the date of Mother’s Day, don’t worry, you’re not alone. The reason why there is some confusion about the date of Mother’s day is because in other countries, like Mexico it’s on Thursday May 10th.

You may be scratching your head and asking why Mother’s Day would be celebrated on a different day in Mexico? Well, the main reason for that is because in Mexico they always appreciate their Mothers on May 10th. They don’t let Lent or Easter influence the date of Mother’s Day. Not only do they celebrate on a different day, they also do it a bit differently.

In Mexico they have Mother’s Day Eve. Traditionally on May 9th, the kids come home to their mothers, no matter the age, and thank them for all their labors. They also give gifts and send flowers, similarly to how we celebrate it here in the United States.

Showing appreciation for our moms is nationally similar, but it still is difficult for many of us. Finding the perfect gift can be tough and extremely frustrating. Don’t get wrapped up in worrying about the gift though. Focus on the message that you are trying to send to your mom. That message can be one of appreciation and love.

Mother’s Day sneaks up fast, but don’t be completely caught off guard. You have from May 10 to May 13 this year to share just how much you appreciate your mom. If you end up missing those days because of life, 10 out of 10 moms would recommend to showing how much you love them every day. Moms give so much for us, so just giving back 10% of what they do for us would be huge.
