Mother’s Day, part two.

If you have forgotten to give anything to your moms, the French will be observing Mother’s Day this weekend. The origins of this dating may have to do with the feast of the Visitation, but that is yet to be verified.

In France, it is observed on the last Sunday in May, unless Pentecost happens to be on that date, in which case it is moved to the first Sunday in June.

So to the French, Happy Mother’s Day! And let’s all not just leave it for one day out of 365/6!
