Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours!

Mother’s Day falls on different days around the world and has many different traditions. In Australia, people wear carnations of different colors to symbolize whether their mothers are living or deceased. In Mexico, children sing to their mothers in a type of morning-serenade. Here’s a list of several Mother’s Day traditions from Ireland, France, Spain, South Africa and more.

Mexican Mothers Are The Inspiration for Beautiful Art

Today is Mothers Day in Mexico. It is a day to revere the most important woman in your life, and for all Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, that will almost certainly be your mother (my apologies to wives, but your mother-in-law trumps you today).

In honor of those women who helped make us who we are, and to all of the other women who mothered us… our abuelitas, tias, and commadres… I’d like to share some beautiful art by modern artists.

I love this Christmas ornament. It reminds me of almond paste that is molded into decorations in Spain.
