Mother's Day Trivia

Did you know that people around the world honor mothers on a special day each year, but not necessarily on the second Sunday in May? Although the second Sunday in May is the single most popular Mother's Day date, it is not the only one. According to Mother's Day Central, the only months that do not include Mother's Day celebrations are January, July and September.

There are more telephone calls made on Mother's Day than any other day of the year according to Wikipedia and http://wilstar.com/holidays/mothers.htm.

Ann Jarvis, founder of Mother's Day in the US, selected the carnation to represent the day because the carnation was her mother's favorite flower. Jarvis eventually worked in opposition to the holiday that she helped establish because she considered the commercialization an abuse of the celebration.

Mother's Day is May 9, 2010 in the US. Here are a few items that I found on Zibbet that would make wonderful gifts:
