    In honor of Mother’s Day, Twitter published a list on its blog of the top 10 words and phrases people have tweeted this year about their mothers.

    "Happy" topped the list, which was ranked by the number of times a word or phrase has been used in a tweet since Jan. 1. Here's the full list:

    1. Happy
    2. The best
    3. My life
    4. My everything
    5. Beautiful
    6. Proud
    7. Pretty
    8. Amazing
    9. My world
    10. Strong

    Twitter also shared an interactive map to show the popularity of tweets about mothers in countries around the world. The geotagged tweets were based on Mother's Day mentions in 10 languages.

    Mother’s Day is Sunday in the U.S. Other countries celebrate their own version of the holiday at different times from February through March.

    In other Mother's Day social news, the hashtag #MomQuotes began trending on Twitter on Wednesday after “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon asked viewers to send in tweets of “funny, weird or embarrassing” things that their moms have said.
