Mother's Day has become popular in big cities in recent years. Celebrated on May 14, the day is expected to express gratitude to mothers with gifts and greetings. However, some experts believe China should have its own Mother's Day, rather than borrow from the US. Many countries have their own Mother's Day. For example, France's Mother's Day falls on the last Sunday of May.  Is celebrating US Mother's Day appropriate? Should China establish its own Mother's Day?

Actually, in most countries that celebrate mother's day, it is on the second Sunday of the month of May. But, if China wants to have it on a different day... no one really cares.

THey should not copy this marketing SCAM!!
You don't need to wait one day of the year to buy your mother a gift!! you can do it any day you want!! boycott these scams...
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

I think may be it is those retail businessmen who want as more special days as possible, so that they could earn more money.
On mothers' day, things are double the price than usual and it is super difficult to book a table for dining.

Something with Chinese traditions sounds nice, but hope the special day would light our love for mothers, instead of  following the fashion and fall to the trap digged by businessmen.
