Cheap International Calls from firstnumber on Mother's Day

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is an annual celebration primarily of mothers, but also of grandmothers, mothers-in-law, guardians and other female relatives. The day is observed across the globe, on different dates for each country. But one thing unites them all – the opportunity to catch up with mum, and show her your appreciation.

The tradition of honouring mothers dates back to ancient Greece, where feasts were held to celebrate Rhea, Mother of the Gods.

Modern Mother's Day, as we know it, was established in the United States around 1870. Its founder, Anna Jarvis, wanted a day dedicated to “the person who has done more for you than anyone else”. In 1912, the Mother's Day International Association was founded to promote the new tradition.

Usually celebrated by children presenting their mothers with cards, chocolates or flowers, Mother's Day is a time for families to come together. But if you can't make the journey in person, there's nothing mum would appear more than a phone call. At firstnumber, we offer cheap phone calls to countries worldwide. The UK has already celebrated Mother's Day this year, but the special day is still to come for many countries. Poland celebrates on May 26th, Bolivia the day after, and Kenyan mothers are honoured on the last Sunday in June. So, no matter where in the world she is, with cheap calls from firstnumber, there are no excuses for not phoning home to say “I love you” this Mother's Day.
