La Fête des Mères - Mother's Day in France
To my surprise, I received a beautiful bunch of roses and a telephone call for the Fête des Mères. Surprised because my sons had already remembered the UK Mothering Sunday on 22 March this year. If I play my cards right, I could have several celebrations a year.
The French celebrate Mother's Day on the last Sunday in May, except when it falls on Pentecost when it becomes the first Sunday in June - which is what happened this year.
The dates for the coming years are
30 May 2010
29 May 2011
03 June 2012.
