Guiding our children to become the best versions of themselves and our future leaders is a big job. It is also one of the most joyful and rewarding experiences of my life.

​The celebration dates may not be the same in every country but Mothers everywhere are celebrated. We moms are truly unified in our devotion and love for our children and families no matter where we live or what we do. Worldwide Mothers are honored for how much they mean to us.

Mothers Day in Mexico

Dia de las Madres, is May 10 in Mexico. It's a hugely popular occasion celebrated throughout the country. Children thank their mothers
for their efforts in bringing them up and sons and daughters make themselves present in the house on the eve (May 9) of Mothers Day.

Mothers Day in Japan
The tradition of exchanging gifts is not seen much in Japan. Instead, children "wish" their mothers with flowers considering it a token of love. Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May and is symbolized by beautiful red carnations, which represent the gentle strength of mothers who are revered in Japanese culture. Children draw pictures of their mothers in school and sometimes enter them in art contests.

Mothers Day in South Africa 
South Africa celebrates Mother's Day by acknowledging the importance of mothers in their lives and thanking them for all their love and care. People also give gifts of flowers and cards as an expression of their feeling of gratitude and affection.

Mother's Day in France
It was in 1950 by Napoleon that the day was officially inaugurated for honoring Mothers. It is called Fête des Mères.  In France, it usually is a family affair and mothers around the country are honored with poems, gifts, cards, and dinners.

Mother's Day in Australia 
Another country, which honors Mothers with carnations and other flowers, is Australia. Chrysanthemums are another popular choice, because mothers there are called Mum. Aunts and grandmothers are also acknowledged with gifts. Events are held around this holiday, with many targeted at raising money for women's causes.

wish all of you a beautiful day filled with love, joy and a little pampering.
We deserve it!
