Is mother's day really a day to celebrate mothers or is it a commercial cash grab?


It is said that mother's day is the 2nd biggest spending holiday in the US with consumers shelling out over 14 billion to make mom happy for 1 day. Would you prefer if Mother's day was less commercialized and it was a day spent with family without all the hype and expense attached?

    Sorry, that is nonsense, the retail shops spend vast amounts on advertising aimed at their target buyers for any celabratory event, advertising works otherwise it wouldn't be active.
