Mother’s Day: a year-long celebration

Mother’s Day isn’t an Armenian celebration. It’s one of those American “Hallmark” events – buy Mom a pretty card, an expensive bouquet of flowers, and treat her to an over-priced buffet.

To Armenians, Mother’s Day is an every day celebration – especially because families were separated due to the Genocide or illness.

Children without mothers were raised by other relatives – if they were lucky. Others were sent to orphanages. They, like many other children, were left to their own defenses; a mother’s love was only a dream.

Please, take time – not just on this Hallmark day – but throughout the year to tell your mother how much she is loved. If your mother is gone, please take a moment to remember her.

TheArmenianKitchen.com wishes ALL mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day!
