|Mother and daughter in Red Square|
list on Wikipedia and found that Russia and many eastern European countries hold it in early March, Middle Eastern countries have picked late March, the UK version is connected to Lent making it March or April, and then a very long list of places have Mother's Day in May. Now you know.)
To enter the competition, all you need to do is leave a comment here and tell me either:
- a great place you've travelled to with your mother or daughter (or son), and why you enjoyed the trip
- a place you'd love to take your mother or daughter (or son) and why you'd choose that place.
Make sure you leave me with some way to contact you - if you link up to a website of yours that's fine, or if you don't have one, leave your email address in the comment (it's fine to spam-proof it by typing jack AT gmail DOT com if you want, I won't use it for anything except contacting winners). It would be great if you could also follow my Facebook page to stay in touch with the results.
To hopefully get your prize to you well before Mother's Day - remembering I'm living way down here in Perth, the most isolated city in the world, and many of my readers are spread across the globe - you must leave your comment by Saturday, 14th April 2012. I've decided I'll ask my mother to decide the winners, based on how interesting she finds your comments! (I'll strip your contact details off them first, just to make it completely unbiased!). So, hop down below, leave your comment, and wait until mid-April to hear if you're a winner!
(And remember - anyone can leave a comment in the "Name/URL" section - you don't have to leave a URL, just a name is enough.)
