Yes of course it was for you! Oh well it can be for May then!

I didnt realise it was different dates all around the world! How strange! So is it just the UK today?

phew!!! THANKYOU!! so kind of you to mention me Lauren

yes I believe its just the UK that has mothers day today. In Australia its on May 14 and I think the US are on that day as well but I am sure one of the US members will correct me if I am wrong.

hang on I just did a search... this is taken from http://www.inmamaskitchen.com/SEASON...y_history.html

Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Japan, Australia and Belgium celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May, however some countries observe it on a different day. Sweden and France chose to celebrate this occasion on the last Sunday in May, and the French often treat this occasion similarly to a family birthday, when the family gathers together for a celebration meal culminating in the enjoyment of a special Mother's Day cake. We see once again the connection between Mother's Day and Spring festivals, as in Lebanon it is held on the first day of spring, South Africa holds its celebration on the first Sunday in May. Argentina and India observe Mother's Day in October. The festival Durga Puja in honour of Durga, the Divine Mother and most important Hindu goddess in India is celebrated with a 10 day festival in early October. Spain and Portugal celebrate Mother's Day on December 8th, when they not only honour mothers but attend religious services to honour the Virgin Mary.

Happy Mother's Day! It's not till May here, but there's nothing wrong with celebrating it a couple of times a year!

Whoa! That did confuse me for a second
I never knew they were different dates either.

But nevertheless,

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!

All of you mothers out there are amazing and definitely deserve a pat on the back!
