Mother's Day is dependent on the region of the game (North American, Japan, European, or Korean). For the European release of New Leaf, it is dependent on the language of the game and not on the country set. For example, if the country set in the 3DS is Germany but the language set is Spanish, Mother's Day will fall on the first Sunday of May.
