By | Events | No Comments

Celebrate Mother’s Day with the best of Argentina!

Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. Mother’s Day is steeped in tradition. Although, we may view it as “just another Hallmark Holiday” it is one of those days that we should all stop and take notice of the special woman or women in our lives that have been there for us through thick and thin.

Make sure that you leave your plans till the last minute, book your spot now at San Telmo or Palermo (Or both? We are open for lunch and dinner) and show your Mama how much you love her!

In Argentina, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of October. The holiday was originally celebrated on 11 October, the old liturgical date for the celebration of the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary but after the Second Vatican Council, which moved the Virgin Mary festivity to 1 January, the Mother’s Day started to be celebrated the third Sunday of October because of popular tradition. Argentina is the only country in the world that celebrates Mother’s Day on this date.
