EDITORIAL: Celebrating Mother’s Day Twice — May 10 and May 13
By EGP Editorial
Mexico and other Latin American countries celebrate Mother’s Day on May 10th, no matter what day of the week it happens to fall on. In the United States, Mother’s Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May, and this year it falls on May 13.
This year we want to encourage our readers to embrace both dates, and to remember that the holiday observances are really just a reminder to do what we should probably be doing all year long: telling mom, or that special person who has been like a mother, how much we appreciate their sacrifice, compassion, good advise and support.
It does not take a big outlay of cash to show you care; it’s the little things that often mean the most. So start with:
A phone call
A bouquet of spring flowers
And say I love you
These are things only you can do – and coming from you, they mean everything.Print This Post
