According to Wikipedia, "Mother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March or May...
Mother's day in the Philippines is celebrated every second Sunday of May. A Filipino mother is called the "light of the household" around which all activities revolve. Families treat mothers to movies or lunch or dinner out, spend time with their mothers in a park or shopping at the mall, or give their mothers time to pamper themselves. Most families celebrate at home. Children perform most chores that the mother routinely handles, prepare food or give their mothers small handcrafted tokens such as cards.
Although in its current form, Mother's Day is not a traditional Filipino holiday; this and Father's Day owe their popularity to American influence."
The painting in this greeting card is called "Mom and Babe," the second in Cyril Maza's series of parent-and-child paintings. He painted it within the first quarter of 2013. The original painting is a 22" X 28" acrylic painting on canvas.
