Ammon News - Mother's Day in most Arab countries is celebrated on 21 March.

The reason that Mother's Day is celebrated at different times of the year dates back to the origins of the holiday in each country.

The first traces of Mother's Day can be found in Greek mythology when goddess Rhea, the mother of Zeus, was honoured in spring. In the Middle East, most countries celebrate the holiday on March 21 – which is the spring equinox.

This includes Jorddan as well as the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen.

In the United States, Mother's Day is celebrated annually on the second Sunday in May; therefore, the date changes yearly.
