HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

27 January 2022

The Mother's Day was celebrated in Russia on November 28, as usually it is celebrated on the last Sunday of November. At the same time, more than 20 countries of the world celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May.

The first attempt to establish Mother's Day in Russia took place back in 1915, but was not established in the national calendar. In the 1990s, the idea of ​​creating Mother's Day was brought again. And in 1998, the President of the Russian Federation signed a decree on the establishment of the holiday, the purpose of which was to remind of the important role of the mother in the life of every person. Although Mother's Day in Russia is a young holiday, it has already acquired its own traditions. So, it got it’s own symbol - the flower forget-me-not. By the way, images of teddy bears with forget-me-nots in their paws are also an attribute of the holiday.

In the USSR, there were special awards for mothers. The Maternity Medal was awarded to women who gave birth and raised 5 or 6 children. Those who gave birth and raised 7, 8 or 9 children were awarded the Order of Mother's Glory. And if there were 10 or more children - the order and title "Mother Heroine" was awarded.

Concerts, contests, promotions, exhibitions are held in Russia on this day throughout the country. Mother's Day is especially loved in schools and kindergartens. Children are happy to recite poems about mothers, draw their portraits and make gifts with their own hands. Also, it has become a new tradition among the youth to publish photos with mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers in social networks.
