If you’re Panamanian, today’s the day to call the wonderful women in your life and wish them a Happy Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is celebrated in Panama on December 8 of each year. The day commemorates the Catholic feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ; the holy day was inaugurated by the Catholic Pope on December 8, 1854. Mother’s Day was legislated as officially occurring on December 8 in Panama in 1930, at the initiative of Panama’s then First Lady, Herlinda Arias de Arosemena.
