Leave Mother’s Day Right Where It Is!

After reading a post on 10,000 Birds.com about moving Mother’s Day to a Sunday in July, I was distraught for several reasons. May is a beautiful, flower-filled month with lilacs, lily of the valley, and flowering trees at their peak.  In July, there are very few blooming flowers and bouquets wilt fast in the intense heat. The beautiful May flowers complement beautiful mothers.

Additionally, many families plan vacations in July. No one wants to truncate a vacation at the beach to visit mom and  partake in a heavy brunch in oppressive heat. Traditionally, gifts of chocolate are given to mom and a sloppy, melted mess will not endear you.

Mother’s Day has been an American tradition since 1914 and who are you, Corey, to suggest moving the date just to make it more convenient for you and fellow birders to ogle warblers?
