Public Holidays in the Netherlands
Mother's Day (moederdag) in the Netherlands is traditionally celebrated annually on the second Sunday in May. In the Netherlands, mothers are treated to small gifts from their children and sometimes their partners. They enjoy a prepared breakfast in the morning, followed by excursions to the countryside.
Mother's Day gifts can be bought in shops weeks in advance. In the process, many organisations also offer specials for Mother's Day. Gifts are made in the kindergarten and primary school.
Mother's Day is not an official holiday in the Netherlands. Shops are open on Mother's Day, like on any other Sunday.
