Fêtes des Mères

Joyeux Fêtes des Mères

Wishing mothers around the world a joyous Mother's Day 
as we celebrate in the United States on the second Sunday in May.  
If you want to celebrate twice, 
be sure to mark the last Sunday in May (25th) 
for the traditional French celebration of mothers.  

The tradition calls for flowers and perhaps a poem, 
catering to the whims of "maman," 
and culminating the day with a large meal for the whole family, bien sûr.
The dessert, so I am told, is a cake that resembles a bunch of flowers.

bon dimanche

Maybe I can get my kids to come back on the 25th and wash some more of my windows. :~}
Hope your kids treated you extra-special too, ma chère --
