Mother's Day in Portugal


Every year, on the first Sunday of May, Mother’s Day is celebrated in Portugal.

In Portugal, Mother’s Day was first celebrated on December 8, and was later changed to the 1st Sunday in May in honor of the Virgin Mary, mother of Christ.

And in your countries?

In Brazil we celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May since 1932 when Getúlio Vargas signed a decree making it official. I had no idea it was celebrated on another day in Portugal! :slight_smile:
