It’s haha no hi (母の日) in Japan today, so I was tickled to call mom, speaking in Japanese congratulated her on the mother’s day. She simply laughed. ^^
I just found out that different countries have different dates on celebrating Mother’s day. Never noticed it before when I was in Indonesia.
In Indonesia, it’s on December 22 while for example, in Thailand, it’s on August, 12, which’s the queen’s birthday. As she’s regarded as the mother of Thai people then it turned out to be mother’s day.
And as for Mongolian, it’s on March,8 (actually woman’s day) and June,1 celebrating mothers and childrens’ day. So it’s the only country in the world that celebrate mother’s day twice in a year. 🙂
Isn’t it unique?
Happy mothers’ day for all moms in the world, here’re some quotes for you moms.
