Celebrating Mother’s Day in Mexico and Abroad

Mother’s Day is coming up for many countries around the world, including Mexico! The month of May brings more than spring flowers. For Mexican communities, it brings a joyous celebration of motherhood (that often includes flowers). That’s because each year on May 10th, Día de la Madre is observed in Mexico. 

Here are 4 popular ways to celebrate the moms, grandmas, and mother-figures in your life from near or far:

1. Start with music in the morning

Music can turn any day into a celebration, and Mother’s Day in Mexico is no different. Join in the fun by waking your mom up with a song! You can take part in this custom in a number of ways. You could hire a mariachi band or gather family members to serenade her together. (“Las Mañanitas” is a popular song choice). If you’re unable to be home for the holiday, you could send her a voice recording of you singing or a link to a playlist of songs for her.

2. Turn the day into a feast

Whether it’s going out together for brunch or cooking your mom a homemade meal, why not enjoy popular recipes like huevos rancheroschilaquiles, and enchiladas? If you’ll be apart, food can bring you together. Try making plans with your mom to eat the same meal while you talk on the phone. Even from another city, you and your family can connect over a shared love of favorite dishes.

3. Send mom a heartfelt gift

Around this time of year in Mexico City, crowds gather at the famed Mercado de Jamaica flower market to buy floral arrangements for mom. This can be a great option, and you can pair a bouquet with a card or her favorite candy. If you’ll be away, you could also send money and let her pick her own gift this year! 

People across the world use money transfer services to contribute to the festivities at home. With Ria Money Transfer, you can easily send money to Mexico and 165+ countries in just a few clicks.

4. Keep the Mother’s Day celebrations going!

This year, Mother’s Day in Mexico falls on Wednesday, May 10th, 2023 — but it doesn’t have to stop there. In the month of May, Mother’s Day is also observed by many other countries, including the United States, Colombia, El Salvador, Chile, Canada, and more. Many multinationals and Mexicans living abroad choose to celebrate on more than one day. So why not keep the fun going and celebrate with your mom multiple times?
