It's Mother's Day in Antwerp!

Flower shops were doing brusk business today for the occasion of Mother's Day in Antwerpen. Unlike other provinces, which hold the event on the second Sunday of May, Antwerp tradionally has Mother's Day on Ascension Day mid-August, the day on which Catholics celebrate the Holy Mary. For flower shop owners, this day makes up (at least partly) for a poor spell due to Covid-19.
