In the Portuguese culture, we honor our mothers in countless ways throughout the year. While the traditional Mother’s Day is closely linked to the church and celebrated on December 8, Portugal also now celebrates Mother’s Day in May along with the rest of the world. No matter which day or what time of year, Portuguese mothers are held in high regard because of their lifelong dedication to their children. Portuguese mothers do a beautiful job of cherishing their children and showering them with enough adoration to last a lifetime.
People raised in the Portuguese culture are so fortunate because we’re born into the care of some of the most devoted mothers on earth. And we’re even more blessed because of the variety of gracious women who help with our upbringing. To be Portuguese is to have more than one mother-figure. Our culture embraces the concept that it takes a village to raise a child successfully and lovingly. In addition to our beloved Mae (mother), we often benefit from the contribution of a wonderful Avó (grandmother), precious Madrinha (Godmother), and invaluable Tia (aunt) in raising our children.
At Rooster Camisa, we recognize and appreciate the importance of what all kinds of mothers in our lives do for us. We’ve created a Mother’s Day collection of Portuguese-inspired products to help you celebrate all the wonderful mothers in your life. We hope you enjoy our great gift ideas.
