Happy Mother Day

Mother's Day / Ziua Mamei is celebrated in Romania, since last year, in the first Sunday of May. The Law 319/2009 in the form adopted by the Senate of Romania provides that the Mother's Day is celebrated in the first Sunday of May and the Father's Day is celebrated in the second Sunday of May.  Unofficially, 'till last year, Mother's Day in Romania was celebrated on March 8, together with International Women's Day as a leftover tradition from the communist period (in 1965 it was declared it official Holiday in the Soviet block). I grow up in this tradition, this is why I wrote "Iti Multumesc, Mama! Thank you, my Mother!" poem as gift to my mom in March 8th.

Mother's Day / Ziua Mamei 2011

Actually, the dates and months of Mother's Day differ from country to country. Important is that the Romania declared official Holidays these days of May to honor all the persons who have such a great impact in our lives.  Today, special for our moms, a lovely video-clip with a song dear to my heart: Mother / Mama.

It's such a pleasure watching mums with their babies when listening the  lyrics sung by Catalin Crisan .... and, indeed, as the refrain said:

If I am MAN, If I am Alive
I just want to thank you
My Mom, 
You taught me to have a heart,
To know who I am and who I was before,
My Mom,
To understand what HOME means,
And when I'm talking about my home,
I'm thinking to you, my dear Mom.

Daca sunt OM, daca traiesc,
Doar tie vreau sa iti multumesc
M-ai invatat sa am un rost,
Sa stiu ce sunt, sa stiu ce am fost
Sa pricep ce inseamna ACASA,
Si vorbind de casa mea
Sa ma gandesc la dumneata, Maicuta mea.

Happy Mother's Day!
