hallmark holidays. you should love your mom everyday, if she is worth it. there can be some bad parents (mothers/fathers day) that do not deserve any recognition.



I agree you should not need a single day to show your love to your mother. everyday you show it and make her feel freaking great

Find it really dumb to be honest, just like Valentine's Day. They are just made up holidays to make us spend more money.

Instead, why don't we just do things for each other year round instead of needing to celebrate a fake holiday?



Aside from that, how do you feel about your mother though?


I love her more than anyone or anything else in the world. I see her every day. I help her, she helps me =D

um, i think its a nice holiday. mothers are usually thought of someone in the background, give them notice and power. but at the same time it makes it feel overated in some aspects.

asian contries and parents day, grand parents day, and so forth.

2. Have you ever gotten your mother something for Mothers Day?

mother is picky, usually take her out to eat. we get her flowers but she doesn't care at all for those, yet we do it every year.

3. Is there any point in having such a holiday?

as stated above, also it gives us an excuse to go above and beyound for your family if you actually care about it.

4. Are you a mother yourself? Have your children ever given you something special on that day?
i have mothered animals if that counts, and no.

Enjoy!

I don't celebrate these things anymore.

I used to give bouquet of flowers to my mum on mother's day [aged 10].



I used to get so excited for festivities when I was younger... [like 4 or 5]... I remember I used to get so excited about lanterns when Chinese New Years come around. [i'm half-Chinese, though I might not look it ...]


For some reason... I just can't get into it anymore. I feel like... the mature part of my brain is taking over my identity... and now all I think about is romance and shit like that. i'm so tired of myself.

I see. Aside from yourself, how do feel about it in general? Do you like your mother?

I think it's pointless like every other "special" day...

Yeah I love her (who doesn't?) am a mommy's boy...

True. I guess that is why I dislike those Hallmark cards you buy at the store.

they are overpriced.

(apparently, they give money to people who come up with those lines on the card, wish I could have that job)

I agree with it costing too much.

I won't pay $10 to $ 20 dollars for a card when I can make my own. Rather have it come from the heart instead.

we have similar thinking...

I really prefer a hand-knitted scarf rather than a $50 gift card....


handmade gifts are more... idk.. romantic to me xD
