Mother's Day Around the World

We've already celebrated Mother's Day in the UK this year, but today is Mother's Day in the US and so I'm sharing an infographic showing the various traditions around the world for Mother's Day celebrations (click to view larger size). Mother's Day is celebrated throughout the year around the world, for example in Serbia and the Philippines it doesn't take place until December! It's an important day wherever you are, and as well as being a day to spend time with your Mum there are lots of other traditions. For example in Ecuador, sons will stand outside their Mother's door before sunrise to serenade them with a guitar, and in France mothers are given a cake that looks like a bouquet of flowers!

You can find out about all the different traditions below:
