Ask your friends how they celebrate. Most will say dinner, chocolates and/or flowers today. My Portuguese friend said her Mother’s Day was the week before but it was the same. The Nile Club is having a Mother’s Day dinner special at Jerusalem Restaurant on May 10. The Afghanis don’t have a special day but take good care of their mothers every day, they said. A Punjabi said she celebrates holidays the Canadian way including Christmas with a tree and presents even though her family is not Christian.
