We still celebrate it - in Romania. No one remembers how it started anymore, but it is an occasion for children to honour their mothers, so many call it 'Mothers' Day', which, of course, isn't correct, but it's nice and everybody loves it.

I am certain that the world is livable because women contribute so much for well being of the family in particular and society in general. A society where women do not get due respect and are not recognised for their immense sacrifice and selfless devotion will perish sooner than later.[/size]

It is truly lovely to hear men speak so highly of women. Thank you and thank you Luker4 for the flowers. They are so beautiful.
