SENTENCE COMBINATION, May 3rd, 2010

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important skill in writing. There are many ways to do this--many possible bonus points! Try to combine the following three sentences.

Sentence 1: In many countries, Mother’s Day is celebrated in early May.
Sentence 2: In some countries Mothering Sunday is a church celebration held in March.
Sentence 3:  The date of the celebration is irrelevant as the significant thing is to honour the importance of our mothers in our lives.

I have no idea if this is what your looking for, or if I just created a run-on sentence;

Although the date of the celebration is irrelevant as the significant thing is to honour the importance of our mothers in our lives, many countries celebrate Mother’s Day in early May, whereas other counties, Mothering Sunday is a church celebration held in March.
