Summary
Third Sunday in October

In Argentina, Mother's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of October.

The holiday used to celebrated on 11 October. This was the old date for the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary but after this date was moved to 1 January, the tradition of a Mother's Day in October was continued with the third Sunday of October adopted as Mother's Day.

Mother's Day is celebrated across the world, in more than 50 countries, though not all countries celebrate it on the same day.

Early History of Mother's Day

Arguably, the tradition of a day to celebrate mothers can be traced back to the times of the ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honour Rhea, the mother of the gods.

Early Christians celebrated the fourth Sunday of Lent as a Mother's festival to honour Mary, the mother of Christ.
