Mother's Day in Georgia was established under the initiative of the first President of Georgia Zviad Gamsakhurdia in 1991. The Supreme Council supported his initiative, and the holiday gained an official status.
Mother's Day was to substitute the “Communist holiday” International Women's Day, that is traditionally celebrated on March 8. However, Georgian women celebrate both holidays.
Like in other countries, Mother's Day in Georgia, is a family holiday. Children congratulate their mothers and show them their respect and love for everything, that mothers have done for them. Although Mother's Day is a family holiday and it should feature family dinner, restaurants and cafes are usually busier on this day, than usually. Taking mother out for a treat is a widespread practice.Remind me with Google Calendar
