Mother’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday, May 8th this year… if you live in the United States or over 50 other countries. Not all countries celebrate mothers on this day, though. Other popular dates for celebrating mothers around the world this year are March 8th, March 21st (the first day of spring), and May 29th (the last Sunday in May). In Thailand they celebrate mothers on August 12th which is the queen’s birthday. To learn more about things you can do to celebrate Mother’s Day, visit www.mothersdaycentral.com.
In the Children’s Room, books about holidays and festivals around the world are kept in Row 2 at the call number j394.2. We keep our large collections on specific holidays in our storage area. If you look in the catalog and see that the status of an item is STORAGE, ask a librarian and we cab get the item for you. When it gets close to the time of the holiday, we put the books on display in Row 12.
