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.
