Why Celebrate

The following are the main reasons why you should participate in the celebration of Mother’s Day in Mexico:

To Thank Mothers

Of course, the main purpose of this kind of celebration is to give thanks to all mothers. They have taken good care of us ever since they started to conceive us in their womb. They nourish us and make us all feel safe and secure starting from the moment that we were born. Hence, it is just right for you to celebrate Mother’s Day in order to give back to all the good deeds that your mother has given you. People enjoy celebrating this day as much as they enjoy celebrating National Stepmom Day.


To Show Appreciation to Mothers

Whether or not you spend a lot of time with your mother, the unfortunate fact today is that people do not show much appreciation to their beloved mothers. People get too busy with their work or studies that they always forget to say to their mothers how much they love and appreciate them. Hence, you must celebrate this day to turn this fact around. This can be the starting day wherein you show your appreciation and love for your mother.

To Give Love to All Mother Figures

Maybe the woman who gave birth to you isn’t with you now —but it’s a good bet that there are other strong, influential women in your life. Mother figures come in many shapes. They can be your foster mother, stepmother, or any person who has treated you like their own son or daughter. Thus, you can celebrate this day with them and thank them for everything that they have done for you.

Celebration Ideas and Activities

The following are the best things to do to make your celebration of Mother’s Day in Mexico as best as it can be:

  • Some days, 24 hours is too much to stay put in, so I take the day hour by hour, moment by moment. I break the task, the challenge, the fear into small, bite-size pieces. I can handle a piece of fear, depression, anger, pain, sadness, loneliness, illness. I actually put my hands up to my face, one next to each eye, like blinders on a horse. – Regina Brett

  • For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. – Steve Jobs
