Do you know when Google registers the highest number of searches for "flowers"?
And which day sees the highest telephone traffic?

In both cases, the answer is Mothers’ Day

Showing respect, love and appreciation to our mothers should be something we do every day but this celebration gives us the opportunity to do it in a special way.


An international festival

There is no doubt that this festival is very popular, just look at the list of countries that celebrate it.

Australia, Denmark, Finland, India, China, Japan, the Philippines, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Switzerland, Turkey, Canada, the United States, Belgium and other countries celebrate it as we do on the second Sunday in May. Other nations, on the other hand, celebrate it on different dates, such as Great Britain, Mexico and France. 

In total, there are over 40 countries in the world that have chosen to celebrate mothers with a day of celebration dedicated to them.

This festival can, therefore, also be a great opportunity to organise a prize-competition abroad.
