Last Sunday was Mother’s Day in Spain. While all my Spanish friends were paying their respect to their wives, mothers and grandmothers, I did absolutely nothing for or with my mother. It wasn’t because I was rude or disrespectful, but because my Mother’s Day isn’t until next Sunday the 10th!
If you’ve got friends from outside Spain, you may see them post wishes on their twitter, Facebook or Instagram now. In fact, here is a list of countries that celebrate it on the second Sunday of every May:
Anguilla, Aruba, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belgium, Belize, Bermuda, Bonaire, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Cuba, Curaçao, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Grenada, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Malta, Malaysia, Myanmar, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, St. Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Switzerland, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe.
Not all the countries are listed above, some celebrate it in other months of the year, if you want to find out more, you may visit Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother%27s_Day
Needless to say, regardless of when Mother’s Day falls on, you should love and treasure your family everyday!
Here’s a beautiful poem for all the mothers in the world.
