Mother’s Day is certainly perceived differently around the world, but in the United States and Canada, there is no doubt that this special day on the second Sunday in May provides an excuse to spoil mothers for all that they have done for us over the years. As history indicates, Mother’s Day is an ideal opportunity to talk to mom, and to treat her to a meal since phone traffic spikes tremendously each Mother’s Day, and the restaurants see one of their busiest days of the year. LuxeGetaways has pulled together a few blissful indulgences for you to consider giving to your mom this year.
Mother’s Day is celebrated throughout much of the world, though traditions vary depending on the country. In Thailand, Mother’s Day is always celebrated in August on the birthday of the current queen, Sirikit; in France, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the last Sunday in May and many still go with tradition and make Mom a cake that looks like a bouquet of flowers; in Mexico, it’s celebrated in a very festive fashion on May 10, which usually includes a special church service followed by an orchestra playing “las mañanitas” and then distributing ‘tamales’ and ‘atole’, the traditional early-morning meal to all local mothers; in South Africa, gifts are traditionally handmade, and the day is to celebrate mothers, and all women; in the UK, it’s celebrated on the fourth Sunday of the month of Lent, and is said to be celebrating a version of Mother’s Day since the 1600’s and often still includes a rich almond cake for mothers called ‘Mothering Cake’ or ‘Simnel Cake’; in Ethiopia, families gather each fall to sing songs and eat a large feast as part of Antrosht, a multi-day celebration honoring motherhood; and in Australia, it’s celebrated on the second Sunday in May and in much the same fashion of the United States, but with significance in their flower choice – a colored carnation is worn to celebrate your mother who is living, and a white carnation for a mother who is deceased.
Regardless of how, when or where you might be celebrating Mother’s Day, LuxeGetaways can almost guarantee that your mom would love to be pampered with something from this curated collection of blissful indulgences.
