    Is Mother's Day different in HK?

    My husband & I live in Canada and my mother-in-law in Hong Kong. We realized late Sunday night that it was Mother's Day and we hadn't called her. I mentioned it to someone at work and they said Mother's Day in HK is not the 2nd Sunday in May (May 11th this year) like in North American. It's something like May 25th or 26th. Is that true?

    Thanks. I guess we missed it. Bad son.

    Can't blame the daughter-in-law as I don't speak Chinese and she doesn't speak English.

    Well yes and no. HK celebrates US and UK Mother's Day. There are many different ones around the world: Mother's Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
