Just a little post today to say… Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums of France!
Today, France celebrates Mother’s Day. Traditionally, Mother’s Day is held annually on the last Sunday of May.
On Mother’s Day, French people offer presents to their mums. The most common gifts are flowers, perfume and jewelry. French people usually spend around 40 euros for a gift to their mothers for that special day. Young children are also used to preparing secret gifts at school for mum!
Mother’s Day is not a public holiday in France. Nevertheless, it is an important date for French people. It leaves its mark on the month of May, just like the Christian celebrations of Ascension and Pentecost. You can find out more about Mother’s Day in France and in English-speaking countries.
We wish all the mums a great day. In this cold and rainy month of May, may it warm up your hearts!
