Mother’s Day in the UK will soon be here, on 14th March. However, Mother’s Day for us in France is 30th May. Mothers’ Day in France is usually on the last Sunday in May but is moved to the first Sunday of June if it falls on the same day as Whit Sunday/Pentecost. The origins of Mothers’ Day in France are believed to have stemmed from the Napoleonic era. In 1806, the French emperor announced a special day to recognize mothers of large families. This celebration was revived after World War I for some time. In 1950 a special law was created to dedicate Mothers’ Day as an official tribute to mothers.
