American Notes: American Mother’s Day

by awindram

AMERICAN MOTHER’S DAY: Confusingly, America designates a Sunday in May for Mother’s Day as opposed to the earlier Sunday in March that it is celebrated on in the UK and Ireland. This leads you to the awkward dilemma of debating whether you should celebrate the day twice. I’d advise yes – provided you can buy your cards on a two-for-one deal. American Mother’s Day is most noticeable as being the day of the year when middle-aged women across the country set out to scientifically prove that there is, after all, a bottom to the bottomless mimosa.
