Mother’s Day is the worldwide holiday to show appreciation towards mothers and mother figures, which goes back to ancient Roman and Greek traditions. The Catholic Church also adopted the holiday to celebrate Virgin Mary on December 8. Countries around the world celebrate it on different days of the year, ranging from February in Norway, to December 22 in Indonesia. Mothers all over Argentina are probably being showered with flowers, cards and chocolates today, as the country celebrates the holiday every third Sunday of October.
