Mexican Mother's Day is celebrated on May 10 each year. The celebration was first held in 1922 and is commemorated by a special mass in some Mexican churches.
On Mexican Mother's Day, older children present their mothers with purchased gifts, while younger children often give handmade gifts. It is common for sons and daughters to give their mothers cards and flowers on Mother's Day. Some schools in Mexico organize skits and songs for the children to sing to their mothers on Mother's Day. While the day is an observance and not an official holiday, some businesses close early so that employees can enjoy part of the day with their mothers.
