Poll: Do you celebrate Mother's Day?

Is it just a ‘Hallmark holiday’ or do you mark the day in some way?

TODAY IS MOTHER’S Day, a day specially designated for expressing thanks to mothers for all they do or have done for us.

We’ve been asked you for the best (or worst) advice your mother ever gave you over on our Open Thread, and we’ve also offered some advice on what not to give your mother as a gift to mark the occasion.

Not an official holiday in any shape or form, some Mother’s Day dissenters say that it’s simply another excuse for card companies to crank out their wares and they put pressure on children to buy gifts.

The same complaints are often raised when Father’s Day comes around (it falls on 17 June this year).

Do you celebrate Mother’s Day in some way?
