Mother’s Day Holiday and Traditions

In the USA, Mother’s Day is celebrated every second Sunday in May. I have a childhood memory of my mother dressing me up to attend Sunday worship services. She pinned a red carnation to my clothing. Then I noticed that she was wearing a white carnation. I asked her why. She said because her mother had passed away. If your mother has passed away you wear a white carnation.  If your mother is still alive you wear a red carnation. Personally, I never carried on this tradition with my own children. These days I don’t see very many people wearing carnations on Mother’s Day. Perhaps it’s no longer a common practice. But, in my own way and you could say, in my own tradition, I do celebrate and honor mothers; my mother, all mothers, and all women. Because all women are all mothers.
