Mother’s Day. Note that when Anna Jarvis trademarked the phrase “Mother’s Day” she was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it is singular possessive. Each family was to honor their mother individually, not raise a toast to Mothers in general and call it good. momMother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May in the United States. Many countries have the same date but not all. In Mexico it’s May 10 whatever day that falls on. In the UK it’s March and Argentina it’s the third Sunday of October.  In Russia it is the last Sunday of November and in Norway the second Sunday of February. I’m glad Mother’s Day is a spring holiday here in the U.S. because Mom is into plants and flowers. A hanging basket would be a frozen chunk of ice the last Sunday of November or the second Sunday of February. Here’s to Mom, have a happy Mother’s Day and “Plant One On Her!”
