It’s Mother’s Day here in the US, and it’s also Mother’s Day in Italy. Here’s an Italian account of how it’s celebrated in Italy:
Children usually buy presents for their mothers. Flowers are a very popular present on this day, a lunch of flowers, usually roses or plants with flowers. At midday people usually eat all together to celebrate their mother. We usually have a big dinner: stuffed pasta, meat and for dessert a heart shaped cake. There are a lot of them in pastry shops. We love them. After dinner we are free to play or to go out with our friends. On this day, mother is a special guest. Everyone helps her and she doesn’t work for a day, at least! Then she opens her presents and she’s very happy!
