so true, if not for madelaide, we would be so busy with microstock that we forget about more important things like celebrating with our loved ones on christmas, easter, mother's day ... and most of all, getting a life !
muito agradecimiento adelaidinha  for reminding us! we must nominate you for our microstock diary  ;)

Here in the Christian and ex Christian world (Europe) Mothers' Day is celebrated much earlier in the Spring on the 4th Sunday of Lent which is called Mothering Sunday by the church.

b79,

I was surprised to know that it's not Mother's Day in Argentina.  Here in Brazil it used to be May 12th, then later (but many years ago) it was changed to the second Sunday of May.  When I learnt it was the same in Europe and USA, I thought it was an almost international day.  What about other countries in Latin America, does anyone know?

Father's Day however is on the second Sunday of August, and as far as I can rememer it had always been in August.  I read that commerce did not want it to be in June, because there are other festivities here in June, and August didn't have any.

Madelaide, as far as I know Fathers day here in the US is on the second Sunday of June...at least my kids have always made a big deal on that day, and I for my Father, ever since I can remember, originally I was born on an island of the Caribbean and it was the same there, that's so weird I thought Mothers Day as well as Fathers would be celebrated on the same days throwout S. America as well...wow that's interesting ;D

Yes, I know, that's why I mentioned that commerce did not want it to be in June.  I meant that here in Brazil it is in August.

que tal b79? what about Feb 14 valentine's day?  in costa rica we don't call it valentine's day, but more "dia de amistad" where it is a day for all friends rather than just lovers or sweethearts, which i think is
better . as my best friend who is a spinster once told me: dia de amistad is more inclusive whereas valentine's day  frowns on being single.

 i can also understand your mother's reaction,  in other parts of latin america mothers will look at you and say , "por que solamente uno? dia de madre debe el ano entero, no solamente un dia en maio! !"
verdad?  (why? mother's day should be all year round).

I edited my post because it really did not reflect what I meant to say, but I will try again, it's so weird, I really thought that those special days where celebrated on the same dates throwout S. America, US and the Caribbean...that's good to know, just goes to show you, you learn something new everyday, thanks, I just learned something new about Brazil and Argentina...amazing though, I've so many friends from both countries here in the US and it still news to me...wow, interesting.  ;D

here father's day is the third Sunday of June. (but i think i remember they moved it to the second sunday if it falls on the long weekend from Flag Day, which is June 20th). and in August (2nd Sunday it think, used to be first Sunday) is the Children's day (Da del Nio).


is it today??

Valentine's day (San Valentn) started here a few years ago as an imported thing, but i guess it produced good sales because they are pushing it a lot lately. from what i remember there used to be a "dia de los enamorados" in september 21st, but that's also the Student's Day (Dia del estudiante) or Spring Day (Dia de la Primavera). The "dia de la amistad" (we call it "dia del amigo", Friend's day) here is July 20th because of the day the man landed on the Moon (yes, really because of that, and i know there's no possible relation)

And about the por qu solamente uno? (why only one?), I agree it makes no sense to have only one Mother's day (or father's day, or friend's day, or women's day, or Earth's day) because that would mean I care about it just that one day and screw it the rest of the year, BUT for retailers is easy to focus the advertising on one day for each thing that try to sell Mother's day all year round.

Claro, it's all commercialism . Every chain store knows that too, that's why they spend so much money on marketing . If you'ed ever owned a store, you'll know how much money is spent just for one day of these "exploitations of endearment" .
For  Christmas  alone, the store I work part time , made enough sales and issued rainchecks on HDTV, games, etc..  to allow them to lay off sales people , or cut their hours to almost minimal for the rest of the year.
