Celebrate Mothers’ Day

Mothers and mother figures are given flowers, cards, candy, and other gifts that symbolize appreciation, respect and love. It is a bittersweet day for moms of missing children (desaparecidos). Groups of these mothers protested on Mothers’ Day, calling for the government to help find their children, in previous years.

Public Life

Mothers’ Day is an observance and not a public holiday in Mexico. However, some public offices have been known to close early in the afternoon so employees can spend some of the day with their mothers.

About Mothers’ Day

The first official Mothers’ Day celebration in Mexico was held on May 10, 1922. The celebration soon took on religious undertones, with images of the Madonna and Child being displayed on Mother’s Day. The day has gained widespread popularity over the years. It is also celebrated in other countries worldwide.
