Hi all


Happy Mothers Day to all!!
 
Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.
- Stevie Wonder
 
A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.

Dates around the world


Mother's Day is celebrated on different days throughout the world. Examining the trends in Google searches for the term "mother's day" shows two primary results, the smaller one on the fourth Sunday in Lent, from the British tradition of Mothering Sunday (it is also called ladies day and women's day), and the larger one on the second Sunday in May.[6]

The extent of the celebrations varies greatly. In some countries, it is potentially offensive to one's mother not to mark Mother's Day. In others, it is a little-known festival celebrated mainly by immigrants, or covered by the media as a taste of foreign culture (compare the celebrations of Diwali in the UK and the United States).

Note: Countries that celebrate International Women's Day are marked with a cross '''.Islamic calendar

^^^^ You're right one can celebrate any day, but this did not seem like a personal celebration.

I wasn't aware that UK celebrated Mother's Day the fourth Sunday of Lent. Apologies.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there.
