There are a few dates that Will and Guy would like to clear up concerning Mother's Day. In the USA, Easter has nothing to do with fixing the date of Mother's Day, it's always the second Sunday in May for American mums - May 12th in 2013. The timing is different in the UK where Mothering Sunday is the third Sunday before Easter, this will be on the 10th of March in 2013.

Mother's Day and Mothers' Day - No Joke!Regarding the use of the apostrophe, our logic is that we remember one's mother, thus Mother's Day. In British English, as opposed to American English, it's also possible for a group of people to celebrate their Mothers' Day. While this usage of the apostrophe is grammatically correct in England, it's not in common usage.
