Mother's Day is usually celebrated in the spring, most often in May. For instance, El Salvador, Mexico and Guatemala celebrate Mother's Day on May 10. This is not a public holiday, that is why no one receives a day off, but at the same time it's one more reason to celebrate motherhood and show love and respect to all mothers.
The problem of breast cancer affects many women in Canada and the observance of National Denim Day on the Tuesday following Mother's Day is aimed at raising fund for further research and development of appropriate treatment. The observance was established by Cure Foundation.
