Feliz Dia de la Madre by Luna McCarthy

Happy Mother’s Day!! Mother’s Day always falls on May 10 in Guatemala, as opposed to many countries where it falls on the 2nd Sunday of May. Colorful cards, balloons and gifts are given and generally the holiday is celebrated in the same ways as in other countries. Families go out for dinner or have a large celebrations in the parental home, celebrating the mothers and grandmothers. No matter what day of the year, mothers are precious and should be celebrated and respected as the rocks of any society, but if you live in Guatemala or have Guatemalan heritage, que tienes uno muy feliz Dia de la Madre!
