Mothers Day v. Mother's Day v. Mothers' Day
« on: May 13, 2007, 05:39:43 PM »

Not a dig on anyone here or anywhere else.  I actually saw all three versions in cards at Target yesterday.

This is a day for all mothers so I'm down for #3.

What is this?  Some sort of grammar quiz?


LOL @ Wiki crap.  Go outside....... and get a job, if you're serving no purpose here.  After all, it really is that simple.  Beer is bad for you.


On Topic:  My vote is for whichever is the plural of all those that are mothers, for this is their day to be recognized collectively.

Both "Mothers' Day" and "Mother's Day" make sense.  On the one hand, it's a day set aside to celebrate all mothers.  However, I always write "Mother's Day" because it's specific to and for my mother. 


And besides, calendars declare it as "Mother's Day". Cheesy

To me, it's a day to celebrate my specific mother, so Mother's Day.  (I agree w/ E-A-G-L-E)
It's also a day to celebrate my grandmother, but she still gets card for "Mother's Day", not "Grandmother's Day".

If you don't like the wikipedia entry on Mother's's Day, you can try the uncyclopedia one:

http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Mother%27s_Day


For those not familiar with uncyclopedia, it's a sarcastic parody of wikipedia that claims to be "an encyclopedia full of misinformation and utter lies."

 Sad  I'm sorry to hear that.  These family get-together plans do seem to have a tendency to fall apart at the last minute.
