Ok, so today is mother’s day in USA! Happy mother’s day to all of wonderful mama’s!
Mother’s Day (Dzień Matki) in Poland is not until May 26th, but I thought I will give you an idea for different wishes, just in case you would like to write a card for your mama in Polish.
Mother’s Day is marked with the special celebrations in schools and kindergardens. Younger children prepare so called “laurki” for their mothers. ( laurka – is a sheet of paper decorated with flowers, birds, hearts etc., on which children write their wishes to their mothers). Schools often carry special ceremonies or classes to commemorate Mother’s Day.
Kids with dads usually buy flowers or different gifts for their moms. I used to clean the house with my brothers and “prepare” a meal for our mom – as best as we could!
Here is a beautiful song/rhyme/wishes for this special day (it was my favorite when I was a little girl – I used to sing it to my mom every year on her day):
Dziś dla Ciebie Mamo świeci słońce złote,
Dla Ciebie na oknie usiadł barwny motyl.
Dziś dla Ciebie Mamo płyną barwne chmurki
A wiatr je układa w świąteczne laurki.
Dziś dla Ciebie Mamo śpiewa ptak na klonie
I dla Ciebie kwiaty pachną też w wazonie.
Dzisiaj droga Mamo masz twarz uśmiechniętą,
Niechaj przez rok cały trwa to wielkie święto.
Today for you the sun is shining golden Mom,
For you on the window sat a colorful butterfly.
Today for you Mom colorful clouds float
And the wind puts them in a holiday’s “laurki”.
Today for you Mom sings the bird in the clone
And for you also smell the flowers in the vase.
Today, you mom smile all day,
Make this holiday last all year!
Do następnego razu… (Till next time…)
