Like any other holiday or celebration, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day have become so commercialised I’ve turned off the idea of giving them the recognition I am told I should.

Do you celebrate Mother’s Day and/or Father’s Day? If so, how so?

I do like my boys to do something nice for Mothers day.
They are all so very busy, I look forward so much to that day...not so much for any gift, just time together, and have some fun.
One can never 'love' others too much. :) in this area.
No that's not me in the pic...lol.

Yes I do - at least my parents do ;)
Yes, I celebrate both. It doesn't have to be about spending money. Just a hug and maybe a homemade gift or some time spent together are enough.
I don't really like mother's or father's day. I don't think the love is distributed evenly between the days. Mothers are praised on mother's day while fathers on a whole are more often chided for being inept. Whether these fathers were good or not.
You bring up a really good point!

We celebrate the original day - Mothering Sunday - not Mother's Day. This is important for the traditionalist pedant in me. But then my husband likes to celebrate Father's Day which I find mildly annoying as it is a made up event and I think that really we should show our love and appreciation for each other all year round, not just on one day.
VerityG, I have never heard of 'Mothering Sunday'. What is it?
by Vee
It was the day that all domestic servants were given as a holiday for them to go home to visit their mother and their mother church. It was in Lent and the tradition was that they helped their mother bake her Easter cake whilst they were there. In our village growing up, our tradition was that each child in the church was given a bunch of violets to give to their mother.
Mother's Day is just the secularisation and commercialisation of Mothering Sunday.
