    ...maybe pass her a tin of Amstel, to make her really feel that she's really loved? :wink:

    Nothing, since both me and my mother are Dutch!

    Isn't Mother's Day sometime in May in Holland? Does your Mum get to watch the Giro with you instead?

    Mum's not religious, says she'd never heard of it till she came to the UK - suits me.

    Is mothers day a religious holiday/ occassion? :shock:

    If so, i'll buy her a bible. If not, i'll buy her chocolates.
    Out with the old, in with the new here.

    My family don't really celebrate stuff like mothers day/fathers day/love your dog day so i've always been free to watch Flanders and drink Duvels. Unfortunately my fiance has finally got her way this year and invited her folks round on sunday PM so won't be able to watch live but have negotiated a compromise that I can have the TV sunday evening to watch it delayed.

    It has its origins in mothering sunday.

    I bet that the large majority of the population don't realise that it has it's origins based in Christianity.

    It's another commercial festival isn't it ? :wink:

    That said, flowers and card will be dutifuly sent.
    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

    Yes, it always has to be a card with 'Mothering Sunday' for my mum. Mother's Day is a heathen festival for which participants will burn in hell.

    Strange question, it's Sunday, I go out on my bike and she cooks Sunday Dinner. If she make a good job of the Dinner I may get the kids to do the washing up.

    I am getting my girls to make my wife's breakfast...while I go out with the club until lunchtime. I like to think of it as a win-win :)

    It is clearly a marketing ruse to sell more flowers and gifts. I get the impression it is a rip off of the Fathers day held in June where the ladies and children of our nation join forces to pay homage and give thanks (via the donation of suitable gifts) to their hard working, bread-winning, discipline giving fathers.

    To this end, I'd ignore it and hope it goes away.
  • Load of censored tbh, my parents arent even religious and yet they still go on about this bloody stupid days! just made to make people spend money! it's a piss take!

    My Sister has gone shopping with instructions from me to purchase something suitable and I shall reimburse her tomorrow.

    Mother's Day is more fun in Norfolk and Gloucestershire, apparently.
