Mother’s Day in Mexico is a well-established, almost sacred celebration. With so many different ways of celebrating it—some that do not include expenses and consumerism—but the devotion we feel for the women who nurtured and nurtured us.

At present the celebration of Mother’s Day is less related to biological motherhood and more with the exercise of the maternal function, thus extending to women who care and protect others. At Atención, we want to honor the most important women in our lives, and we present you these cute postcards of our beloved moms.

Celebrations for mother and motherhood have their origin in ancient Greece, where celebrations were held in honor of Rhea, the mother of Zeus. According to the myth, Rhea was the wife of Cronos and queen of the heavens. When Cronos heard the prophecy that he would be dethroned by one of his sons, he began to swallow them as soon as they were born. When Rhea gave birth to her youngest son Zeus, she hid him in a cave on the island of Crete. She gave Cronos a rock wrapped like a baby that he devoured without thinking. Rhea is also the goddess of fertility and motherhood.
