Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year. This year it is on 13 May .
Ukrainian emigrants started to celebrate Mother’s Day in Canada in 1928. In a year the traditions of the Mother’s Day were borrowed by the women of Galichina.
The Mother’s Day is a state holiday for Ukrainians since 1999.
This holiday is not very popular in Ukraine yet, like Women’s Day (March, 8), but it becomes more and more known with every year.
Honoring Mothers in Ukraine is an ancient tradition, rooted in the Slavic era. After the arrival of Christianity, the worship to the keeper of the family has only grown, as all the thanks and respect to mothers Slavs began to show through the worship of the Mother of God. Today she is considered a defender of all Ukrainians and mother Ukraine.
Mother’s Day is important for each of us, because mother is our protector, who understands and forgives us, ready to love us no matter what. She is always with us in happy days and in sad and gloomy ones.
The beauty of motherhood and the happiness it brings is chanted by poets and artists of all time.
Celebrations are held in the main squares and streets of the country on Mother’s Day.
The best gift for any mother is when she knows that her children are happy and healthy.
Love your mothers, help them, remember them – no one will do more for you than them, and no one will be with you as sincerely as they are.
Let your mother know how much you love and appreciate her. It’s so easy to call, send a card, or have flowers or a gift delivered.
