Happy Mother’s Day
In Japan, Mother’s Day had been March, 6th that an empress’s birthday since 1931 to 1949. Then it became the second Sunday in May that is same as the United States.
Sending a Mother’s Day card is not too common in Japan, but giving flowers (especially carnations) is a popular thing to do. I am very close with my mom.
Since hugging parents (except by children) is not a common practice in Japan, I sometime wonder if words are enough to show love. Besides, I feel a little embarrassed to express my feelings in front of her, but I always appreciate her open mindedness.
What did you do for your mom?
