Mother’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, regardless of a country’s religion, race or background.

Many countries have similar ways of celebrating the day but there are some differences to take note in if you choose to celebrate.

The date

While many holidays have a set date (Christmas — Dec. 25, Valentine’s Day — Feb. 14, etc.) the date Mother’s Day falls on is different depending on the country. For example, countries including the U.S., Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa all celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May.

For other countries the second day of May is not the normal tradition. In Ireland it’s the fourth Sunday, Mexico May 10th (a fixed day) and the United Kingdom voids May completely and celebrates the day on March 26th.

Mother’s Day themes

So, the days may vary but the theme of what one will get a mother and what countries consider celebrating the day have many similarities, such as two reoccurring words: flowers and love.

When researching mother’s day traditions, it was apparent that most can agree the day is for gratitude and love towards not only a mother but women as well.

Whether it is the second Sunday of May or March 26th, places everywhere agree the day is one to serve a mother with flowers, cooking, relaxing time or even making your own gift.

  1. I absolutely loved this article as it truly touches on the celebration of all motherhood. Although I have never learned of how Mother’s Day is celebrated in different parts of the world, I imaged mothers are hopefully as appreciated as they deserve in some special way. To learn about the unique ideas each Nationality incorporates for this fun holiday is very interesting. I would love to have more information on this topic included, there could be more info on the specific cultural celebrations for Mothers Day. Other than that, I love the excitement and idea behind this reading. Thank you for sharing!!
