Are you such a big fan of Mother’s Day that you wish you could celebrate it more than just once a year?

Well, as long as you're willing to travel, you could accomplish just that.

While the second Sunday in May is the most common day Mother’s Day is celebrated around the world -- the United States and Canada are two of 96 countries to celebrate Mother’s Day that day -- other countries honor their mothers during other days and months.

Here's a look at when other notable countries celebrate the holiday.
