One of my mates from high school now lives in London and was talking about mother's day back in March. I found this strange as I figured it was the same day since Australia tends to follow a lot of British customs. After a quick online search I found out that mother's day is on many different dates around the world. Here is a link to the full list but here are some of them.
March 8th: Several countries in Eastern Europe including Kosovo, Bulgaria and Romania.
4th Sunday in Lent: The UK, Ireland and Nigeria
Spring Equinox: Most countries in the middle east including Eygpt, Kuwait and the U.A.E
2nd Sunday in May: This is the most popular date and includes the U.S, Canada, Australia and many other countries in the America's, Europe and Asia.
There are also several countries that celebrate Mother's day on various dates throughout the year.
This year we celebrated Mother's Day at our home and cooked one of my mother in law's favourite dishes. What did you do for Mother's Day this year? Did you know this holiday is celebrated on different dates around the world?
