Mother’s Day in Mexico is a celebration of two mothers: the one who raised you, and the sacred Virgin of Guadalupe. This iconic figure represents the religious mother of all Mexicans, and thus is an extremely important figure in their faith. Bouquets of flowers are placed at her altar, and many people travel to worship at the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
Always celebrated on May 10th, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to shower mom with love and appreciation for all that she does throughout the year. Flowers, chocolates and other tasty goodies are some of the most popular gifts to give on Mother’s Day. In fact, mothers are held in such high esteem, that some wealthier families even hire bands of mariachis to serenade their mothers on Dia de las Madres, or Mother’s Day. Today it’s also customary for children to gather at the family home on the eve of Mother’s Day to kick off the celebrations. And, just like in many other countries where Mother’s Day is celebrated, children and adults alike treat their mothers to special gifts, candy, chocolate and heartfelt Mother’s Day cards.
