Mother's Day - first edition

Germans in general aren't as actively practicing religion, as people in the Midwest. But Catholic and Lutheran Holidays are strictly observed. This year Whitsunday (the first day of Catholic Pentecost in Germany) would be on the same day as Mother's Day (which is always the second Sunday in May).

Since Catholic Holidays were scheduled long before Mother's Day was even invented, whenever Pentecost falls on the second Sunday in May, Mother's Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in May - at least in Germany.  

So I ordered a pretty bouquet of flowers, and a heart-shaped box of chocolate to go with it, for my mom. b7f14dab9b44fe6575a0c78f6bf5fffe.jpg
