Happy Mothers Day!
Mother’s Day in Canada occurs on the second Sunday of May. It is not a statutory holiday (federal or provincial) where businesses are closed, but it is a special day to show appreciation for our mothers.
We celebrate and honour motherhood by showing appreciation for our mothers and others who represent mother figures to us. On Mother’s Day, we recognize mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-law, and other mothers we may know. To express our gratitude, we give them cards, flowers, or chocolates. We might also do something special for them such as making a gift, taking them out to a restaurant, or spending some quality time with them.
