    jsk800 has a point. Every day should be a mother appreciation day. It’s borderline insulting to suggest a mother should only be respected one day of the year. I gave my mum a hug. I give my mum a hug every day. Today means absolutely nothing other than it’s Sunday and I get to be lazy all day
    yeah a hug is nice but this is a day to give your mum a present. no idea why people are complaining about having a day dedicated to celebrating everything she does for you properly.

    Don't understand why everyone is posting it on social media. I don't even think they follow their parents on Instagram, or have their parents on snapchat
    Happy mother's day mum (Doesn't tag mum)

    I almost cut myself on all your edge.
    Wow it's so edgy to disagree with everyone. This isn't rebellious in any sense, its stating the fact that the day has become so materialised. Why do you love proving your love to your mother through presents so much? Sounds like her love for you is conditional and a paid subscription... Is your mum Amazon prime?

    I am unborn.

    In any case, I never actually stated that, and I did give reasons why for your logic to be consistent, you must necessarily disdain of other personal celebrations, too. But it's easier not to address that actual points, eh.

    The issue is the fact that the commercialisation of the day has built a norm around performing affection through spending money.

    Birthdays aren't built around showing affection are they. Lets be honest, birthdays are really just counting and celebrating another year. Mother's Day on the other hand, is specifically about giving thanks. Aren't you going to address the fact that you can only be loved if you pay, "eh?"

    Couldn’t agree more, why did we stop talking again?

    That's not wholly accurate (if there was no affection, why even bother?), but even if it was true, the point still stands - why celebrate a year? It's arbitrary and commercialised. Why not celebrate them every day?

    I dont think theres much logic in "Everyday is mothers day". Mothers day is about that little extra level of appreciation through a nice chat and giving a gift that most people wont have everyday.

    May I point out that OP was expressing an opinion which he is very much entitled to. Let’s not try disagreeing with opinions (nonsensical)

    You are entitled to an opinion only insofar as you can defend it. Of course one can disagree with an opinion.

    Whatever next.

    I’m very close with my mum all the time, and I think mothers (biological and otherwise) should get such wide appreciation.

    What I don’t like is how Father’s Day is less of a thing. I go to church on Mother’s Day but there is not the equivalent Father’s Day service, which I think there bloody should be these days. I also hate how insensitive people can be to women who can’t or don’t have children, or have lost children etc etc. Though that’s a wider issue of course.

    but theres nothing wrong with spending money on the one you love. no different to weddings, birthdays, anniversaries etc. Yeah most days you should show your appreciation through love and gratitude but some days people like to go the extra mile and buy flowers, chocolates, jewellery, other gifts etc nothing wrong with spending a little. do people never buy you gifts on special occasions?
