When is Mother's Day 2013? Don't miss it
Mother's Day 2012 in USA, Canada, & More
Mother's Day falls on the second Sunday in May, so, in 2013, Mother's Day is on May 12. (Of course, if you're reading this after May 13, then, yes, you missed Mother's Day. Nice going.)
Mother's Day also falls on May 12 in:
- South Africa
- New Zealand
Mother's Day in the UK (Mothering Sunday) fell on March 18, as the fourth Sunday of Lent. Mothering Sunday has no connection to the Hallmark Holiday that is North American Mother's Day*. Hopefully you made it to the garage forecourt in time for last-minute flowers.
Call your mom on Mother's Day.
(* Even Anna Jarvis, who created the current version of Mother's Day in 1908, says that Mother's Day became a Hallmark Holiday. The very first Mother's Day Proclamation, written by Julia Ward Howe, was delivered in 1870, as part of the American anti-war movement.)
