Celebrate East-Meets-West Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a time of the year when we all unite to celebrate motherhood around the world. Mother’s Day in the United States is held annually on the second Sunday of May. This year it will be celebrated on May 8th. Many of us have made plans to celebrate Mother’s Day in our own way. Some like to eat out or cook mother’s special recipe, buy favorite gifts, visit their mother or invite their mother to celebrate with them.
Any special day is incomplete without food. Mother’s day is no exception. Some like to make it special by dining in a fine restaurant with their mother.

Although Mother’s Day is not traditionally celebrated in Asia, the culture values mothers’ sacrifice and love greatly, so the concept of celebrating Mother’s Day has been catching on. In most holiday celebrations, the mother in the family spends an enormous amount of effort preparing an elaborate meal. To give her a break, many Asian families treat their mother to a restaurant meal for a no fuss celebration. As a part of the American melting pot, immigrant families join in the restaurant dinning scene on this special day. We also take advantage of this non-traditional day to try out other restaurants outside of our own ethnic ones.
Mother’s day is also incomplete without a gift. You can purchase a gift or you can even make one all by yourself and surprise your mother to make her feel appreciated. Check out this site for great Mother’s Day gift ideas. https://www.pinterest.com/explore/mothers-day-ideas/
