Mother’s Day is an event that is celebrated to honour, love and respect our mothers globally. It is usually celebrated on the second Sunday of the month May. Although in many countries it is celebrated in Ferbruary, March and April as well.
A Mother is that woman who gives birth to us, raises us, listens to us, smiles at us and tells us that it is okay every time there is something wrong; gives us breakfast, makes dinner for us, listens to us when we yell at her telling her that we want something better to eat, pats our backs when we don’t get the first place in our class and tells us that we did great anyway, buys good clothes for us. In short she is always there for us and wants what is best for us because she knows us more than anyone else in this world.
Without moms we would be nothing. She is our best friend when we need one. She is a good listener when we need someone to talk to. She has our back when other people stab it. She is one in a million.
A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people,
promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan
To mothers all over the world: Happy Mother’s Day! You deserve not just one day but all 365 days of our lives. Because you dedicate yours to your children.
To mothers all over the world: May you all smile because your children give you reasons to. Just like you give us a reason to smile each time we look at you and are relieved that you are there.
To mothers all over the world: Thank you.

Most of these have been analyzed carefully many times and they transcend every kind of classification and exclude any kind of dogmatism.
He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on the 24th of August, 1899 and died on the 14th of June, 1986 at the age of 86.
Argentinian Rock is a genre very widely related to rock, punk, new wave and Heavy metal among many other genres.
It appeared in the second half of the 60′s, during which it originated as a musical genre called “Musica progresiva” to then be called “Rock Nacional” (National Rock). Rock Nacional formed when many underground groups started to compose songs in spanish about topics that worried the youth of that time. Since then, Argentinian Rock has evolved constantly in the 70′s and 80′s to become an internationally recognized genre.
You probably have heard, or not, about MATE. This is an Argentinian tradition and part of our culture. It’s a wood or pumpkin glass we can say so you understand. With different shapes, colours and sizes.
On the other hand, you’ve got hot water inside a Termo, which in the photos is the rounded and large metal tube. This Termo is used to keep the water hot for long so it doesn’t get cold.
I know that another girl wrote about the asado, but I want to share with you the decalogue of Asado that I found some years ago, and that it’s such a good way of telling you what an Asado really is to the Argentinians. So let’s begin:
The Asado starts when you go to choose and buy the meat
