Who believes Mother's Day has become a sales pitch instead of the real meaning.

By Helen . Created on 10 May, 2019
I believe Mother's Day has become a real sales pitch that makes people feel guilty if they don't buy an expensive gift that they can't really afford when all most mothers really want is a phone call or a visit from their children. Yes! Many years ago my mum gave life to five children and and thankfully she and they are all still alive and the five of us still live close to her and even though she is 97 and we are all over 60 she still sees us regularly. She doesn't need anything except a visit from her children. Her mother raised 6 children and she is the only one left but she still talks about her childhood memories when the only gifts anyone could give is what they made so let's think about what Mother's Day really is before we run up debt on our credit cards.

Mothers day, Christmas, Easter father's day are all sales pitches nothing more. I teach my kids theres more to this life than material items.

No matter how commercially it is now, there is still that personal way to say a big thanks mum, so I think it still has a huge meaning in everyone from 5 to 95, it means so much to mum too, getting some recognition of her hard work.

Thanks M , you have been a busy little beaver. for your message. I do agree and when mine was alive we did spoil her. I only have 1 grandchild so thank goodness there is no hardship for us at Christmas unlike those with more. How wonderful it is to hear such positive comments about one's mother. Take care. B.

Like all celebrations they have become a money spending moment. When really all our mothers want is a kiss and a hug and be thanked for doing there best.

Thank you Helen, I have been saying this for years. My Mum and 3 grown up kids agree! It's all for retailers and florists to make a big buck. If a person can't be thankful, nice etc everyday to Mum, we don't need one day a year to prove it! Happy Mother's day Helen and to all the other lovely Mums out there.

My Mum is no longer with us so I will be communicating with her through her final resting place an urn which I have at home. It is not uncommon for me to do this as strange as some may think. I do believe it is commercialized as is Christmas and Easter. When Mum was alive it was always flowers and chocolates. I hope that those of you on this site and are Mother's do have a good one. I know I will.
