Mothers’ day, as we are all aware of, is one of the largest card-selling holidays celebrated worldwide.

Mother’s Day is now celebrated in many countries around the world. Australia, Mexico, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Belgium, Russia, China, Thailand, all have special celebrations to honor Mothers, but not in the same way or on the same day as the United States.

George Washington once said, “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”

52 % of the words for mother in the material have ma/me/mo or na/ne/no in the root syllable poems.

The number of mothers estimated in the United States in 2004 is 82.8 million.

During the 1600′s, England celebrated a day called “Mothering Sunday.” Servants would go home to see their families, bringing cakes and sweets to their moms. This custom was called “going a-mothering”. Each mother would recieve a simnel-cake (Latin for “fine flour) and mother’s would give a blessing to their children.
