Mother’s Day is a day honoring mothers, celebrated on various days in many places around the world. It complements Father’s Day, the celebration honoring fathers.

Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days throughout the world. Examining the trends in Google searches for the term “mother’s day” shows two primary results, the smaller one on the fourth Sunday in Lent (it is also called ladies day and women’s day), and the larger one on the second Sunday in May.
The extent of the celebrations varies greatly. In some countries, it is potentially offensive to one’s mother not to mark Mother’s Day. In others, it is a little-known festival celebrated mainly by immigrants, or covered by the media as a taste of foreign culture (compare the celebrations of Diwali in the UK and the United States).
