Samoa holds a very special place for mothers and their role in the community. Bearers of a nation and nurturers of great leaders, the roles of mothers are endless and can sometimes fade into the background with all that’s happening around us.
So to truly celebrate the attributes of a mother and their dedication to the building of a nation, a day has been allocated and approved by the Government to be observed as Mother’s Day. The celebrations usually consist of the Mothers and families attending church services in the morning with a big feast to be followed soon after. The spreads are plenty and sizeable, enough to feed a whole village.
Special days such as these are usually followed by another day of resting before proceeding with weekly chores and activities.
