Wishing all the moms, grandmoms, step moms, foster moms and single moms a Very Happy Mother's Day! No matter how hard it can get, always remember the bond between a child and a mother is irreplaceable. Their hugs and kisses pay off! Mothers are the luckiest in the UAE as they are celebrated thrice annually due to our multicultural place. While the UK and USA dates change, in the UAE and surrounding GCC countries, Mother's Day is always celebrated on March 21st. ? My mom and me. ?‍? Happy Nawroz /Persian New Year to all celebrating. Due to our bicultural background, I fondly remember celebrating Nawroz. Mainly - the feast, special prayers for the year and a tradition of writing on plates with saffron water. Last for the best....  Today is World Down Syndrome Day. Each year, the world unites on 21st March, to advocate for the rights, inclusion and well being of People with Down Syndrome. Why 21st March? The 21st day of the 3rd month of the year was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) which causes Down Syndrome. Rock your socks in different colours to show your support!
