Mother's Day in Russia
If the wave of the "young" holiday picked you up, then, of course, you are also asking yourself when Mother's Day is held in Russia. After all, many are puzzled how to celebrate this event: whether to follow European traditions, or whether we have a date dedicated to this day. So, what day is Mother's Day in Russia? All according to the same tradition of European countries: the number falling on the last Sunday of November.
The President issued a decree on when Mother's Day in Russia should be held. The creation of this holiday was carried out with the purpose of increasing the social importance of motherhood, so that everyone living on the planet Earth could pay tribute to his mother, could thank the native person who rewarded him with life and let people into the world.
Every mother is happy to hear a few warm words addressed to her, receive a gift made by the child's inept hands, feel the warmth and caring of the children.
When Mother's Day in Russia passes, according to custom all kinds of events are arranged on the occasion of the holiday. TV channels and radio stations broadcast the congratulations of people tirelessly.
However, Russians are not so enthusiastic about this holiday as our European comrades. But we will catch up. Society needs true values in life, without them the modern sick society "pales" and "pales", bright colors are blurred and only exaggerated values, low and mercantile aspirations remain.
Mothers are the basis for the extension of the human race, and, consequently, the most valuable inhabitants of the Earth, thanks to which we exist. Mother's instinct is dozing in every woman - we can observe this phenomenon when children play, for example, dolls. Maternal love is a powerful energy charge sent to the object of love. And this power is guarded by an invisibly beloved child.
Mother's Day, it can be said, originates in the celebration of the ancient Greeks of the goddess Gaia, who was honored for being the mother of all gods, and also in the tradition of honoring the Romans with the goddess Cybele, who was the patroness of Ancient Rome.
In the Middle Ages, when children almost from the diapers went to work, every family meeting was like a holiday: a happy atmosphere reigned and a "mother's cake" was prepared - the most delicious cake in the world.
By the middle of the 17th century, the memory of this day gradually disappeared, and in 18 completely lost its memory from the people burdened with heavy cares.
The Second World War served as the revival of ancient traditions in the US, and Mother's Day was first proclaimed in 1914.
When Mother's Day is celebrated in Russia, it's like a reminder that the Russian attitude to motherhood is the most tender, that the Russians are not "insensitive chunks". This holiday is able to unite all layers of modern society, promote mutual understanding of all nationalities and force the government to look differently at the importance of motherhood in the country.
