When Is Mother's Day Celebrated In Nigeria? by fam24(f): 4:40am On May 14, 2018
*What day is Mother's day in Nigeria?*
Are you one of those wondering how many times Mother's day is celebrated in Nigeria? Here is an answer.
Mother's Day falls on different days depending on the countries where it is celebrated. It is held on the second Sunday of May in many countries, such as Australia, Canada and the United States. It is held exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday in the United Kingdom.
As Nigerians try to combine the traditions of both United Kingdom (Our colonial master) with that of United States, which sometimes reflect in our English usage (short knicker �), same way we celebrate with both countries on the different dates on Mothering.

As mothers are worth celebrating every single day of the year, even the Prophet (S.A.W.) find them worthy of good companionship thrice, hence let's keep celebrating our mothers.

*A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship? The Prophet said: Your mother. The man said, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man further asked, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man asked again, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your father. (Bukhari, Muslim).*

Shout out to Our Mothers.
