Mother's Day 2012 Is Approaching

Mother's Day is a long-celebrated tradition where moms in the United States are honored and remembered by their children for the contributions and self-sacrifice that moms make in our lives.  

In the U.S, Mother's Day is always celebrated the second week in May which was made an official American national holiday by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914.  So if you are asking, "When is Mother's Day in 2012?"  Mother's Day in 2012 falls on Sunday May 13, 2012.

Because Mother's Day is one of highest seasonal day for the delivery of flowers, greeting cards, gifts, and newer traditions such as edible fruit arrangements instead of the older fruit baskets, very often the price for these items increases as Mother's Day approaches.  In many instances you will see that coupon codes expire at the end of April just before the height in demand for the Mother's Day holiday, so it is important to get your order in sooner before those coupon codes expire.

For younger children, Mother's Day often means crayon drawings or hand-made arts and crafts for mom. Sometimes accompanied by a well-intentioned (but novice) attempt at making breakfast in bed for mom.

Thanks for the reminder about mothers day. I am giving my 84 year old mom a Cellphone. It is a Tracfone LG800 G and I am going to load lots of family photos on it so that she will always carry it so that she can look at the photos. I want her to carry a cellphone at all times so she can call for help if she falls. Am I sneaky or what.
