Mother's Day in Georgia (03/03)

Mother's Day in Georgia, celebrated annually on March 3, was established in Georgia at the proposal of the first President of Georgia Zviad Gamsakhurdia, and in 1991 the decision to celebrate this bright holiday for all 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. Moreover, which is noteworthy, not a single « male » day in the Georgian holiday calendar yet.

The goal of Mother's Day is high and good — to maintain the traditions of respect for women, to consolidate family foundations, to especially note the significance of the main person in our life — Mother.

Mother's Day in Georgia — is a family holiday. It is the children who must know who their mother is for them, what she did for them and what reverence deserves. After all, there is nothing more beautiful and selfless than maternal love. As the sun sends its rays, warming all living things on the 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.
