Event description

Mother's Day in Luxembourg

It's Mother's Day in Luxembourg with Mammendag!

Luxembourg celebrates Mammendag in June. This year, Mammendag will take place on June 9, 2024. 

To mark the occasion, the children in the basic schools, with the help of their "Joffer" or teacher, make a lovely present for their Mum.

The little gift can also be accompanied by a poem in Luxembourgish. A moment of tenderness and love for all mothers!

Father's Day is in October in Luxembourg.

The origins of Mother's Day

The origins of Mother's Day go back to Roman times in the 5th century BC. The Romans paid tribute to women in general, and to mothers in particular, on June 11, the feast of Matraliae. The goddess Mater Matuta, goddess of dawn and childbirth, was celebrated.

Mothering Sunday originated in England in the 16th century. Servants were given a day off to spend with their families.

The first Mother's Day was created in France at the beginning of the 20th century, to celebrate the merits of mothers. General Pétain instituted the holiday on the last Sunday in May, or the first Sunday in June if it coincided with Pentecost Sunday.

Today, the tradition of giving gifts to mothers has turned this holiday into a commercial event. All stores in Luxembourg will be showcasing their products to celebrate moms in style.
