In Mexico, Mother’s Day is called Dia de la Madre and is a very big deal. In a culture that idolizes the female figures of Catholicism, it is no surprise that the matriarchs of the family receive a lot of love and attention on their special day. In contrast to the United States, Mother’s Day in Mexico always falls on May 10. This year, due to the contingency, many families struggle as they are separated, not wanting to visit elderly grandmothers. All recommendations do agree that the wisest thing this year is to continue to give our elderly family members their space so to keep them safe at this time. At the same time, there are many ways to let our loved ones know we are thinking of them and how much they mean to us.
Keep in touch
Phone your older relatives and friends and ask if they need anything and let them know if they do, you can help out. And while you’re on the phone, why don’t you have a chat? You could set up a rotation with other family and friends to make sure someone is regularly giving them a ring to see if they’re OK. This might also be a useful time to introduce older relatives and friends to technology that might prove helpful during this period, such as Zoom or FaceTime.
