Today’s Mothers Day in Guatemala

Guatemalan Mothers Day

If you have followed the daily of updates of the La Antigua Guatemala DailyPhoto (LAGDP) for at least a year, you would know that Mother’s Day is celebrated in Guatemala on May 10th as Día de las madres.

To all the visiting moms, please, let me share with you the Guatemalan classic marimba Un vals para mi madre (A vals for my mother) and wish you a very happy Guatemalan Mother’s Day! A very special Thanks (Gracias) to my own mother for teaching me how to be a fairly decent human being most of the time (I think! ;-) ).

In 2007 I posted a very long entry showing you three kinds of Guatemalan mothers: the cowgirl mother, the urban rocker mom, and the indigenous mamá in the entry May 10th: Mother’s Day in Guatemala. I also touched the subject of inter-country adoptions which was it was hot topic back then. That’s no longer an issue, but if you want to go back in time to read about those three kinds of moms and the adoption issues, follow the white rabbit.

In 2008, I showed you an indigenous mother helping her son to overcome his fears in the entry Mother’s Safety Zone.

Mother’s Day Bonus: I will send today’s photo as signed 4×6 post card with Guatemalan stamps to the first person that can correctly tell me what Mayan language these two Mayan mother speak. You can read all about Mayan languages to see the possible options. Good luck to you all!
