Even though it seems like Christmas were just recently was here, it’s already almost time for Mother’s Day in America: It will occur on the second Sunday in May. But people in America aren’t the only ones who observe Mother’s Day on that Sunday. Fiji, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Austria, Greece, Grenada, South Africa, Honduras, Curacao, Hong Kong and many others do as well.
That’s undoubtedly why, beginning in March or April, so many Web surfers go out looking for printable vintage Mother’s Day cards, Mothers Day clip art and free printable Mothers Day certificates. Not everyone can afford to buy Mother’s Day presents, so freebies like these are their next best option. (Truthfully, though, using the vintage Mothers Day cards and clip art requires a bit of talent. So those might be a little more difficult to use unless you’re a crafty type person. The free Mothers Day certificates are easy to use though. Just print, sign and give them to Mom.)
May Isn’t the Only Month for Moms
There are also many other countries that celebrate Mother’s Day, just not in May. The following nations around the world also have some type of Mother’s Day festivities:
There are also different versions of Mother’s Day, called Parents’ Day, which is celebrated on May 8 in Albania and South Korea, and The Mothers and Children’s Day, which is celebrated in Mongolia on June 1.
It’s pretty clear that the urge to honor Mom is a pretty widespread one, given that basically every region on the planet has some form of Mother’s Day celebration. It’s heartwarming to note that even people in lands that may seem adversarial to us have the common bond of paying homage to the women who gave birth to them.
