Festa della Mamma -
Domenica 10 Maggio, 2020
Cartoline/Fiori : La festa della mamma è una ricorrenza civile in alcuni paesi del mondo, celebrata in onore della figura di madre, della maternità e dell'influenza sociale delle madri.
Ci sono diverse antiche celebrazioni che in qualche maniera possono essere paragonate alla festa della mamma, ma non sono correlate alla celebrazione moderna.
In Italia, la prima Giornata nazionale della Madre e del Fanciullo fu celebrata il 24 dicembre 1933, nel quadro della politica della famiglia del governo fascista. Nell'occasione vennero premiate le madri più prolifiche d'Italia. La data era stata scelta in connessione con il Natale. [Wikipedia]

Ferie secolare : In 1975 protests started in African schools after a directive from the then Bantu Education Department that Afrikaans had to be used on an equal basis with English as a language of instruction in secondary schools. The issue, however, was not so much the Afrikaans as the whole system of Bantu education which was characterised by separate schools and universities, poor facilities, overcrowded classrooms and inadequately trained teachers. On 16 June 1976 more than 20 000 pupils from Soweto began a protest march. Paid holiday when falling on Saturday or Sunday Previously known as Soweto Day.
