Planet Numbers has you connected this International Mother’s Day

6th May 2016

Whilst Mothers throughout the UK have already been treated and spoilt rotten on 6th March, those residing in other parts of the world are yet to be showered with gifts, flowers and chocolates. In fact, a grand total of 84 countries around the world witness this wonderful celebration on the second Sunday of May each year, which in 2016 happens to fall on the 8th May.

Now, you’re probably wondering which countries we’re talking about. You might be able to name 1, or two, or if you’re a trivia champion, maybe 5 or 6… but all 84? Well, because we’re rather delightful chaps and chapesses, we’ve brought you the definitive list. Ready?

Deep breath!

Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belgium, Belize, Bermuda, Bonaire, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Cuba, Curaçao, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominica, Ecuador, Estonia, Ethiopia, Fiji, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Grenada, Guyana, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Latvia, Liberia, Liechtenstein, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Myanmar, Namibia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, St Kitts and Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, Singapore, Sint Maarten, Slovakia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tonga, The Netherlands, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United States, Uruguay, Vietnam, Venezuela, Zambia and Zimbabwe.


That’s right, each of these gorgeous countries will be celebrating their beautiful ladies on Sunday 8th May 2016. But that’s not all. Residents of South Korea choose to celebrate Parent’s Day every 8th May, which the eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed is the same day this year!
