Today is Mother’s Day
In the World people celebrate Mother’s Day in different religions, places and generations.
The love and dedication of women who were populating the World is celebrated since ancient times in different cultures and in different ways.
Perhaps the oldest celebration can be considered the annual spring festival by Greeks offered to Rhea, the mother of many deities. Then the Christians celebrate Mary, mother of Jesus, during the fourth Sunday of spring. In fact, in the Catholic calendar on December 8 is the feast of the Immaculate Conception, a date that remains being celebration of Mother’s Day in some countries.
In Spanish-speaking countries, for example , most have celebrated the second Sunday of May, in Bolivia they do on 9 October, in Dominican Republic the first Sunday of May, in Costa Rica August 5, in Nicaragua May 3, Argentina the third Sunday in October and in Panama on December 8 .
Although it is considered the Mother’s Day as a celebration of consumerism, for others it is just one more chance to celebrate that special woman that we all have in our life and the socio-cultural complexity.
