About the trade show
If Mother's Day is often criticized as a purely commercial annual event, make no mistake about it, in fact its origins had nothing mercantile!
Indeed, the remoteness of the family circumstances generated a lively exchange of Mother's Day cards, and other poems of sweet words between our two continents.
After the war, at a time when our country had a special need to repopulate the custom of Mother's Day was adopted by the French.
Mother's day will be made official until 1928, the date being fixed to the last Sunday of May, except in the case of Pentecost Sunday in which case, the festival will be postponed until the first Sunday in June.
