A ROSE TO ALL MOTHERS
Mother's Day is a day honoring mothers. In Finland it is celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Young children make greeting cards and small presents in daycare or school to give to their moms on Sunday morning. Mothers are expected to stay in bed and sleep until the children have gotten everything ready in kitchen i.e. morning coffee with a cake or cookies. Because it can be too difficult for children to do everything alone, fathers usually help children, especially with the cake and buying flowers. Often families spend the day doing something nice together. Every family has it's own traditions.
