Give it up, gang.  Mother's Day is observed almost everywhere on the Second Sunday of May, just like in America.  As far as i know, the only place in the civilized world where any other date is used is in some places in Europe where the Fourth Sunday in Lent is still observed as `Mothering Sunday'.
