How’s Mother’s Day Celebrated in different countries?

All over the world, Mother's Day is celebrated as a sign of gratitude for the maternal care of children. In different counties, this tradition falls on different dates, from February to December.

Greece and Cyprus

In Greece and Cyprus, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May.

Switzerland

Swiss chefs, pastry chefs, and florists realized the huge commercial potential of Mother's Day and then imported the holiday into their country. This partly German-speaking country celebrates Muttertag on the second Sunday in May.

Russia

Even though International Women's Day is traditionally celebrated in Russia on March 8, Mother's Day also exists, and according to federal law, since the late 1990s, it has been celebrated on the last Sunday of November.

Great Britain

Residents of Great Britain celebrate "Mother's Sunday" on the fourth Sunday of Lent. The holiday was originally a church holiday: most historians believe that it arose from the Christian tradition of the 16th century when it was customary to visit mothers on the fourth Sunday of Great Lent.

Spain

Until 1965, Día de la Madre was originally celebrated in Spain on the Day of the Virgin Mary - 8 December. Today Mother's Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in May - the month that, according to the Catholic faith, is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

Portugal

In Portugal, Dia da Mãe is an unofficial holiday that takes place on the first Sunday in May. As in Spain, it was previously celebrated on December 8 - the day of the Catholic feast of the Immaculate Conception.
