When is Mother's Day 2021? Traditions from around the world and origins


Mother’s Day is celebrated all over the world at different times of the year.
In the United States, the annual celebration of “moms” takes place on the second Sunday of May, while in France the Fete des Meres falls on the last Sunday of May. In the UK, however, Mothering Sunday is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent – 14 March this year.
What is the origin of Mother’s Day?
The first ever movement for the recognition of motherhood arose from the groups for women whose sons had fought in the American Civil War. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson decreed the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day. It spread to Europe in the aftermath of the First World War, when many women had lost their sons or husbands, leaving them to raise their children alone.
