|Hosted by a Mother's Day Whale|
What does a whale have to do with Mother's Day? Nothing, why?
Regardless. Yesterday was Mother's Day, a day which I'm shamelessly choosing to declare the most important holiday ever, for reasons that have nothing to do at ALL with the fact that I got free chocolate. Nothing at all. No bias here.
Anyway. Open thread! Anyone do anything nice with their family (biological, adopted, chosen, married-into, whatever) yesterday? Do you like Mother's Day, or is it yet another fake holiday invented to make us feel like we have to buy cards, chocolates, and flowers? Do you celebrate it with your own mom, and if not, do you have a stand-in "mom" that you recognize instead? Does anyone have any creative ideas for celebrating the day that step away from the traditional flowers-card-chocolate routine?
Monday Reminder! While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those! These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you! (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)
And as always, please post new comments, rather than replying to other comments!
