Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring mothers and motherhood. Mother’s Day is an American invention and is celebrated the world over in many different countries, sometimes on different days. In Britain it is celebrated on March the 10th compared to South Korea where it is on May 8th. Father’s day is also included! When is Mother’s Day in your country? What do you buy your parents? Do you have any other special days that you celebrate? Some countries have Children’s Day and even a Teachers day!
