When is Mother’s Day and Why It’s Important to Celebrate

As a new mom in another country, I was a bit confused when Mother’s Day was happening in another weekend than I was used to in the Netherlands. In France, we celebrate it in the 4th weekend of May. And so it happens on different dates in the world. So what do you choose? When you’re Dutch but live in France? Marik told me to choose 1 day. And I thought we choose the French Mother’s Day. But I still feel Dutch roots in me and wanted to write about it now. 

Mother’s Day is a special occasion celebrated around the world to honor and appreciate the immense contribution that mothers make in our lives. This heartfelt day is dedicated to expressing gratitude, love, and admiration for all the sacrifices, support, and unconditional love that mothers provide.
