INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday “Happy Mother’s Day”

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood all around the globe. Though is celebrated on different dates depending on the country, it’s for sure and special date for all of us!

Happy-Mother-Day-2012

In Canada, is one of the most popular festivals after Christmas and Valentine’s Day and is celebrated in the second Sunday of May (like most of the several countries around the world which celebrate this festivity). So this year, it’ll be celebrated the 12th of May!

In Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Lithuania, Hungary and Rumania for example, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of May, instead of the second one.

Although we don’t celebrate it exactly the same day (in many other countries is celebrated in an entirely different time of the year), the spirit is the same: we pay tribute to our mothers and thank them for their amazing constant support, unconditional love and their devotion.

Normally, cards and flowers are the most common gifts, but I think we should be creative and show our “personal” character on them.

For example, what about a small trip? Or a therapeutic massage? Sounds great eh? Of course it does, and I know our mothers will appreciate that!

Sometimes, I know mothers just want them us to be happy and just  a few words are more than enough. The most important issue is to demonstrate our love and support, like they do every time with us!

For all the world’s mothers: HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY !!

Best,

Mercedes

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Hello everybody!

You already know INTERNeX is a really international company!

Actually our Public Relations Team is formed by 5 different nationalities! But the best of this multicultural group is that we can celebrate each national festivity together! Last Wednesday  was especially for our American intern Katie!

After a great Canada Day, 4th July arrived with such a big celebration in United States! This day commemorates the Declaration of Independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain signed on July 4 of 1776.

All the PR team attended a parade near Seattle and then the awesome fireworks in the city! You can´t imagine how crowded it was! Sometimes I looked around and it just seemed like we were in a film, with all the people on their blankets, the comets in the sky, American flags all around, carnival games…

Which will be the next festivity to celebrate?

In fact there are a couple of possibilities.

This month, the 21st of July, we can celebrate the Belgium National Day, with our Belgium intern Lies. Or maybe we will wait for Xenia until the 3rd of October to celebrate the Day of German Unity or until the 12th of October for the Spain National Day.

We also can wait a bit longer for The Liberation Day in The Netherlands on 5th of May for our Dutch intern, Petra.

No matter what nationality you are, you can celebrate them all! The more possibilities, the more fun!

When is your country´s national day? How do you celebrate it?

Just let us know and we can celebrate together!

Cheers!
