On Mother’s Day, we show appreciation towards mothers and mother figures. We celebrate on different days around the world. In Canada, the Unites States and Australia, we celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May.

On May 8, many of us will express our gratitude towards mothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-law, and other mother figures. The day might include gifts, family gatherings or long-distance phone calls.

Around the world, there are several differences in how and when the day is celebrated. Here are a few:

  • In the United Kingdom, Mother’s Day is celebrated three weeks before Easter Sunday.
  • Mother’s Day is a public holiday in countries such as Costa Rica (August 15), Georgia (March 3), Samoa (second Monday in May), and Thailand (August 12).
  • In China, carnations are popular Mother’s Day presents.
  • In Samoa, some people celebrate with elaborate song and dance performances throughout the country.
  • In Mexico, Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants.
