Happy Mother's day!


Roses for all you readers out there on Mother's Day.

I was not entirely sure who celebrates Mother's Day when - outside Belgium, of course, so ... I googled.  It turns out that all of the following countries celebrate it on the Second Sunday of May.

And while at it, I stumbled upon the Huffington post which is lending a helping hand by providing ready made cards to  be printed and claimed as your own, such as

  6. Ja Anni, moederdag over de gehele wereld op dezelfde dag. Alleen vaderdag is verschillend.
    In Duitsland bv. op Hemelvaartsdag en in Nederland op der derde zondag in Juni. Ik heb op Hemelvaartsdag op de Duitse Teletekst gelezen dat in de 1930er jaren Hollandse sigarenbazen en slagers propageerden voor vaderdag op Hemelvaart als tegenstuk voor de al bestaande moederdag. Maar gek in Holland geen vaderdag op Hemelvaart. Ik wens je nog een fijne zondag. Lieve groeten Dietmut
