Celebrating a Latino tradition with ‘Dia de las Madres’
Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month of May, but did you know that most Latinos celebrate Mother's Day May 10th? In the early 1920s, the U.S. actually influenced Mexico to celebrate Mother's Day, but the conservative government was not on board. With the help of socialist government and the Catholic Church in 1940, the wife of the then-president declared May 10th a holiday. To keep the tradition going, The Jam’s Diana Gutierrez surprises mothers around Pilsen.
