In the United States, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May and this year will fall on 12 May.
Mother’s Day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March, April or May, as a day to honor mothers and motherhood.
In most countries Mother’s Day is a recent observance derived from the holiday as it evolved in the United States. When adopted by other countries and cultures it was given different meanings, associated to different religious, historical and legendary events, and celebrated on different dates.
In my country (Indonesia), we celebrate Mother’s Day, known as Hari Ibu, on December 22nd.
Why December 22nd ?
