La Festa della Mamma

Bits and bobs

Today is Mother's day in Italy.

Italian mothers are the focus of family traditions; it's a big occasion, a day when families traditionally come together from wherever they are to celebrate and look after their mothers.

Like most feast-days in Italy, it can be traced back to ancient Roman culture when a whole weekend of celebrations were held in May to celebrate the goddess Juno.


With the passing of time and the coming of Christianity, this tradition evolved into a religious festival when the 'mother' referred to 'mother church', the giver of spiritual life.  

Although Italian mothers have always been a crucial part of not only the family but equally the community, their formal recognition with a public holiday did not happen until 1957.


It is also Mother's Day in the US.


I think you can never celebrate mothers enough so Happy Mother's Day to all mums,  whichever country you are in, you are doing a great job, thank you.


And for mine: Tanti Auguri Mamma, Bacioni xxx
