Happy Mother's Day

To all the mothers in the world, well at least in China, the USA and a few other countries because the dates to celebrate your mother (which should be everyday, by the way) can range from early February (in Greece) to late December (in Indonesia).

Technically speaking Jeffrey should call his mom on the second Sunday in May (but not only then!). I should call mine on the Last Sunday in May except if it coincides with Pentecost day, in which case Mother's Day will be shifted to the first Sunday of June (could it be more confusing, especially when you live abroad!!). If Chloe was to follow the calendar of her birthday place (Argentina) she should celebrate her mother on the third Sunday in October and Jeremy should remember to be extra nice on the fourth Sunday of Lent, which is exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday, so it can fall at the earliest on March 1st and at the latest on April 4th (could it been more complicated for the little fella?)

Sorry mom I was 2 weeks early. Hope you’ll forgive me if I forget on the 25th!!
If you ever forget to celebrate your mother on Mother’s day (or if you want to save some money on flowers, since the price seem to always sky rock around that time) you can pick another date and tell your mother that it is Mother’s Day in [insert country]…. Check out the date and countries here

It could be Chloe's room!!
