We are going to review some of the most important appointments related to the calendar and the ephemeris of the month of May. And the first day we must target is May 1, International Workers' Day, also known as May Day.

This is a date that, far from political demands, we can use this date as an excuse to explain to children the importance of effort and work. Teaching them from a young age that perseverance pays off, as well as hard work and effort, is essential to preparing them to be dedicated, committed, and responsible adults.

To achieve this, we can use different educational resources, such as children's stories or poetry.

May is a very special month because in many countries of the world Mother's Day is celebrated. Some, like Spain, celebrate it on the first Sunday in May; others, such as Colombia, Cuba, Chile, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, the United States, etc. they celebrate it on the second Sunday in May; in Mexico, on May 10 ... It doesn't matter when the Mother's Day in your country! Take advantage of the month of May to give her the biggest hugs! The goal is to make you feel like the most special mom in the world ...

But we also do not forget, because on May 15 is the International Day of Families. This is a journey to reflect and realize how lucky we are to have a family like ours (remember that family is not always defined by blood!). And the best way to celebrate this day is ...spend a whole day together! We can dedicate it to what we like the most: family games, movie sessions, family cooking ...

Happy May everyone!
