Mother’s Day is celebrated on various days in throughout the world. In the USA it is celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of May. So, this Sunday, May 9, 2010 is Mother’s Day. On a side note, I was born on Mother’s Day. But, due to dates changing every year, my birthday has only fallen on Mother’s Day 2 other times in my life.
In the USA, Mother’s Day is a day to give Mom a nice rest. Many children give their mother breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day. (Maybe one of my kids will read this post and do the same for me on Sunday.) Presents are often given to Mother’s as well on this day. Some examples are jewelry, flowers, spa treatments, greeting cards, or anything that mom likes or wants.
It’s also a big family day. The family goes to a park, doting on mom the entire time. It’s a great day to have special family time.
