I spend Christmas Day with my mother, my cousin Ivan, my aunt, my grandmother and grandfather.

Children usually wear shorts, T-shirts and trainers. It´s very hot because it´s Summer in Argentina at this time of the year.

At schools, students attend meetings and they honoured the national flag and sing the National Anthem. They also perform stories on stage, sing typical songs and learn to appreciate their history, the people who fought for their nation freedom and their social values.

MOTHER´S DAY


Mother´s Day is on the third Sunday in October. We give presents to our Mums and very early in the morning we prepare breakfast for them. Families meet in cheerful parties.

We have a special lunch on that day. We eat meat, potatoes, sandwiches and cakes. The weather is usually sunny because it is Spring at that time of the year.

Mothers and children spend a very happy day!!!!
