May, and Mother's Day is often quite cold here:) I've had Memorial Day BBQ's in a winter coat.
:D We can hope that this year will be mild for both of us.

Yes, Mother's Day and my stepmom's b-day on May 16. The end of May is Memorial Day in US. Then Father's Day and my dad's b-day June 12 (oops, switch that around). DS18 b-day is in July.

Father's Day here is the first Sunday of September. Mother's Day is the same as yours, second Sunday in May.

I have never heard of Grandparents day. I don't believe that we have that here.

Need to look at what I have to do for Mother's Day and Mum's birthday.

Queen's Birthday in June but do not really "celebrate" that, although we get a long weekend. Then no more long weekends until October. We have a lot of holidays at the beginning of the year but not a one for July, August or September.

It would have been my Mum and Dad's 60th anniversary on June 30th so will buy a card and organise some flowers to be delivered.

Then DS birthday in July and then nothing else in the lead up to Christmas.

Will try and organise a family dinner for late October/early November. We try and do it early to free up dates around Christmas when we all tend to become busy with other things.

Our family doesn't celebrate Grandparent's Day because we acknowledge them on Mother's Day and Father's Day. However, the elementary schools and the high school my dc attend(ed) will do a Grandparent's Day. They will have a program to encourage grandparents (and other special older people in the students' lives). I think it's a win-win for the schools, the grandparents (and other special older people) and the students. My dad is the only sibling left in his family. He was invited to his grand-niece's Grandparent Day last year. I thought it was such a sweet thing to bond over.

Mother's Day here tomorrow. There have no plans made and I would be surprised if my kids acknowledge the day.
I have spoken to my own Mum, she does not want to catch up tomorrow as DD, Mum and I are having lunch early next week for Mother's Day and Mum's birthday. Mum decided that she can wait until then to catch up.
DH will probably do something nice for me, I am hoping that he does a lovely roast dinner with all the trimmings, yum. That and a lay in will be wonderful.


ETA, the weather was perfect, a little chilly but sunny. Caught up with Mum after all and had a fabulous day.
