Mother’s Day in Spain, known as Día de la Madre in Spanish, is celebrated on the first Sunday of May.
In the past, it took place on December 8 every year until it was moved to the spring in 1965. This was done partly to disassociate the secular mother’s celebrations from the Catholic holiday of the Immaculate Conception.
What Gifts Are Common on Día de la Madre in Spain?
The usual gifts of flowers or sweets are common in Spain, and some families exchange cards as well.
However, Spain does not have the same card-giving culture that’s popular in the UK.
