Happy Mother's Day, With Love...

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers around the world (but especially to mine!)

The Czech Republic celebrated Women's Day until the Velvet Revolution in 1989.  After the split of the country in 1993, the Czech Republic started celebrating Mother's Day and Saint Valentine's Day.  However, the Czechs saw those two celebrations as commercialized and artificial, and they had mild popularity.  Things are different nowadays though, and we take this day to honor and celebrate our beloved mother.  

And now, a word from Svetlana...
You better visit or call your mother today!  No matter where you are in the world or what you're doing, don't break her heart by not making an effort.  Call...because nothing would make her happier.  Phones are accessible throughout the world, calling cards make it super easy if you're worried about the expense.  Send a card.  Last I checked the postal system is still up and running worldwide.  Emails are impersonal and cold, so just don't do it.  And doing nothing at all is just evil to do to the woman who loves you unconditionally.  Don't break moms heart this Mother's Day.
That is all.
