Mother's Day is not a statutory holiday in Canada.
It is celebrated in many countries around the world but not on the same day, although most countries celebrate Mother's Day in May.
It is a day meant to honour mothers and appreciate their role in society and their role in families.
In the weeks prior to the second Sunday of May flower sales spike, chocolate shops sell tons of cookies and Hallmark makes a fortune from card sales.
We're not agaist flowers, cookies and cards but on this website we'd like to promote something else other than the obvious, materialistic aspects of holidays.
How about on Mother's Day we spend some extra time with our moms, give them a hug and tell them how much we love them.
Thank them for their efforts and time - and don't forget breakfast in bed!
