Today is Mother's Day - or Mother's Day Weekend. With only 52 weekends I wonder how many are available for naming. We have 9 Holidays that effectively knock out those weekends close to the holiday and add to that special days like Valentines, Saint Patricks, etc. and the number of available dwindles.
Some of the attempts to grow a "day" to the power of Mother's Day have failed. Sweetest Day, Grandparents Day, Secretary's Day (now Administration) and the list goes on. It could be the weekend names are saturated.
Maybe it's because we all just want a weekend off.Happy Mother's Day - only Mom's get this weekend off.
