Dia de la Madre

Dia de la Madre also known as Mother’s day is a special day for all the mothers in Spain. On this day all mothers will be honored by their kids by thanking them for their efforts in giving them birth, raising them and being their constant support and well wisher. The Dia de la Madre in Spain is always celebrated on the first Sunday of May. This year’s Dia de la Madre will be celebrated on the 5th of May in Spain.

In the morning it is very common that the children surprise their mother by making her breakfast in bed. Children take over the household tasks during the day and most little children make presents in school.
