Mother's Day in Georgia, annually celebrated on March 3, was established in Georgia at the suggestion of the first President of Georgia Zviad Gamsakhurdia, and in 1991 the decision to celebrate this bright holiday for everyone was legalized by the Supreme Council of Georgia.
At that time, it was assumed that Mother's Day would replace International Women's Day in Georgia, traditionally celebrated on March 8. However, both holidays are still celebrated in Georgia. At the same time, it is noteworthy that there is not a single “male” day in the Georgian holiday calendar yet.
The purpose of Mother's Day is high and good - to support the traditions of caring for a woman, to consolidate family foundations, to emphasize the importance in our life of the main person - Mother.
Mother's Day in Georgia is a family holiday. It is the children who should know who their mother is for them, what she did for them and what respect she deserves. After all, there is nothing more beautiful and disinterested than mother's love. As the sun sends its rays, warming all life on earth, so the mother's love always warms the child.
Recall that in Russia Mother's Day is celebrated on the last Sunday of November, and in most Western countries - on the second Sunday of May.
