Mother's Day is a special holiday to honor mothers and grandmothers. In the United States and Canada, it is on the second Sunday in May. Adult children usually take their mothers to a restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Younger children often cook breakfast for their mothers on Mother's Day. Mothers receive flowers, cards, and gifts on this special day. Remember to tell your mom that you love her on Mother's Day. (3 pages)
