In the UK and Ireland, Mother’s Day (officially called ‘Mothering Sunday’) has already been this year, on March 26. But in case you’ve forgotten to honour your mother that day, just do like the Dutch, the Belgians, the Americans and dozens of other people from around the world and celebrate it on the second Sunday of May. Which, in 2017 is May 14.
More Mother’s Dates
Other dates around the world this year include May 28, which is celebrated in Sweden (Mors Day) and France (La fête des Mères), June 11 (only in Luxembourg) and July 3 (that’s if you live in South Sudan). In Argentina, mums have to wait a bit longer; there, the Día de la Madre is celebrated on the third Sunday of October, which in 2017 is October 15.
In Zambia, Mother’s Day has a totally different meaning: the Zambian law stipulates that working women are entitled to one day off each month: menstrual leave!
