Local name
Dzien Matki

Since the early 1900s, Poland has celebrated Mother’s Day, or “Dzień Matki,” on May 26th each year.

While the holiday is not federally recognized like it is in the United States or the United Kingdom, it’s widely celebrated by the public. Most children make “laurki” for their mothers, which are homemade greeting cards decorated with hand-drawn images and notes.

Families celebrate much the same way as in the United States, with flowers, special meals, and small gifts. Polish Mother’s Day rose in popularity following World War II, at which point many schools began putting on special programs or assemblies to mark the occasion.

In Polish “Happy Mother’s Day” translates to “Wszystkiego najlepszego w dniu matki.”
