Treat mom this Mother’s Day

Take your mom out to brunch or pamper her with spa treatments

The second Sunday in May marks Mother’s Day, which became a national holiday in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure that officially established the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day, according to

The National Restaurant Association conducted a survey in late April and found that restaurants are at the center of Mother’s Day celebrations with the following data:

  • 48% are expecting to take mom out for a celebratory lunch
  • 45% will go out for dinner
  • 30% plan to go out for brunch
  • 21% will celebrate at breakfast

In the February 2022 issue of “Town & Country” magazine, it states that Mother’s Day is the third highest selling holiday for flowers, behind Christmas and Hanukkah.

Carnations are a symbol of Mother’s Day. Historically, women wore a white carnation to honor a mother who passed away and a pink or red carnation to honor a mother still living.

More calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year. The most popular Mother’s Day gift is the greeting card. Gift cards to spas and salons are also popular. The National Retail Federation says that people spend two billion on services like spa treatments for their moms.

From brunch to spa days and a host of other things, there are many ways to show your appreciation to your mom this Mother’s Day. And remember to shop local and support the local economy.
