View Full Version : Mothers day

05-07-2005, 01:11 PM
So i was walking in walmart the other day, and i noticed a table with mothers day gifts and such. but when I read the sign that was on the table it said "Mothers day is Sunday, May 8. Hispanic Mothers day Monday, May 10." Either i never realized that there was a hispanic mothers day every year or is this a new idea? And if there is a seperate day hispanics celebrate mothers day, why, and how long ago did originate? Any help understanding this would be.....well helpful.

Maybe the hispanic culture started a new (or old) mother's day or something?

Either that or Walmart is racist. :p

Wal-Mart must be trying to sell more stuff. Like they even need to.

So is the Hispanic Mother's day on Monday, May 9th or Tuesday, May 10th? BongoBob needs to know so he doesn't ask his teacher early.:p

I think my roommate will be celebrating Persian mothers day sometime next week, though I am not certain.
