Let's Celebrate Mother's Day
For us, Mother's Day feels like it's nearly the start of Spring - with Mother's Day on 19th March 2023 and the first day of Spring heralded on Monday 20th March. Both events make us think of daffodils, lighter colours and hopefully taking off a layer or two of our winter woolies!
Where is Mother's Day Celebrated?
Looking at who celebrates Mother's Day, there are approximately 50 countries around the world, mostly on different dates, spanning from February through to November. Quite a spread of countries and dates throughout the globe! Some are tied in with other relevant dates within their calendar - for example Thailand holds Mother's Day on their Her Majesty Queen Sirikit's birthday which is the 12th August.
Going right back, as Mother's Day traditionally is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent, its symbolism was marked by returning to a "mother church", although these days, there is less link to Church or religion.
