Mother's Day Facts

* Hallmark, according to their own counting, offers nearly 1000 cards for Mother's Day

* "Consumers each purchase an average of 2.8 Mother's Day cards". Don't you wonder.

* Over 9,000,000 Mother's Day cards will be sent, or given in person, this year. That's just in the U.S.

* The average person will spend about $ 152.00 on Mother's Day.

What does a card mean? Do I care about a card? Who knew so many years ago that at some point in time I'd wonder what happened to my card. Not everyone buys into the commercialism of some of our created holidays. After all we plunk down our money and it's pocketed by huge companies who churn out cards. Larger, more colorful, even singing cards are the rage. But some folks don't bite.
