On this day people used to honor their mothers who have a great contribution in their lives and for whom they exist in this world. Everyone has their own way to celebrate Mother's day. Some people give cards, gifts or flowers to their mothers, some prefer to dine out and some prefer to spend the whole day with their mothers. Mother's Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants in the USA and according to Hallmark, each Mother's Day around 162 million greeting cards are sent, making it the third largest card-sending holiday in the world. Whatever the way, the soul aim of this day is to thanks the mothers for everything they have done and make them feel very special.
