Today here in Italy and some other countries around the world it is 'Festa della Mamma'. This however is not the case in the UK so as I am an English mother with English daughters I consider that 'Mothering Sunday' is always the fourth Sunday in Lent and the date when I celebrate along with my mother and my mother-in-law.
Greetings however to those of you who are celebrating with your families today.

In Italy 'Festa della Mamma is held on the second Sunday in May and I believe it is a fairly new celebration first celebrated in the city of Assisi in 1957. I have also been told and seen examples of the cards and poems that the children prepare for their Mothers in school to present to them today.
If you take a look at this chart at Wikipedia you can see the different dates all over the world used to celebrate Mothers Day.
In honour of 'Festa della Mamma' I have chosen Josh Groban singing 'Per Te' as my Italian Sunday Song this week which I hope you will enjoy.
