Mothers Day... Mothering Sunday

Apparently Men spend more on Mothers Day presents, Flowers & Cards than they spend on their Girlfriends, Partners & Wives on Valentines Day !!
I think you should tell & show you love your Mum every day of the year, not just once on this Commercial occasion.
And other halves too....

I always make a point of the fact that when someone in the family has a Birthday, it was, and is, still an important Date for Mum too.

(all of the above relates to Dads too...)

Mothers day, Fathers day, Valentines day.... all commercial clap trap.
I only celebrate birthdays as an individual special day and Christmas as a family occasion.

Add to that list International Women's and Men's days and the expense mounts.
I do usually get SWMBO something for Valentine's day being the old romantic I am Cheesy
I agree that parents in general should be acknowledge regularly but having a special day is nice.

Re: Mothers Day... Mothering Sunday

I went to one of our local garden centres this morning and it was full of people popping in and buying pot plants and leaving without looking at anything else.

Yes it's all a bit forced.
If you need a designated day to see your loved ones are treated well.........................................
