Mother's Day Misgivings
I love how every year, my sons come home from their Yeshiva the Friday before Mother's Day, telling me that "every day is Mother's Day". I know that their teachers and rebbes are teaching them that because Mother's Day is not a Jewish holiday in origin. And I'm okay with that concept, because at least it's consistent with the school policy of giving classes on Thanksgiving, New Years, Christmas, etc. The only thing that really gets my goat is, why do they only tell my kids that every day is Mother's Day once a year?
