Hi! Very Happy My nickname is Waji and I'm from Japan. Nice to meet you. This is my first contribution. I'm happy if many people reply to my opinion. Surprised

Today, I want to talk about Mother's Day. Exclamation My country has this day but I don't know about the day. Do your country have this day and what do you do on that day? I heard that this day started in the U.S. and this day is holiday in the country. In Japan, this day is the second Sunday in May and people give some presents to their mother. I also did that on that day. I think it's a good day to thank for our mother, but it's sad for me to be used for business. Sad How about you? Please tell me your opinion.

It's the same in Cananda, but in Latin America mother's day is in September.

Regards,

Corey

Mother's Day is also on second Sunday of May in Taiwan. I seldom buy my Mom a present in this day before since my mother's birthday is near this day. I was used to give my Mom a handmade carnation as a present when I was a kid,and this is a traditional custom on Mother's Day. According to my memories,I bought a golden necklace for my Mom last Mother's Day.
