brunch. What kind of restaurant would your mother enjoy the most for the
special day? What food would she get and why do you think she likes it so much?
Some kids and husbands treat mothers to a relaxing day of spa treatments and
massages. Imagine that you and your family have tried to turn your house into a
spa to save some money. What would your mother think and why?
Other mothers use the holiday as an excuse to go wine-tasting in the
countryside. Is your mother more of a country, suburban, or city person? Why?

in culture. What kinds of music does your mom like? How does her taste differ
from your own? Why do you think she likes the music she likes?
If your mother could take a trip with her friends anywhere in the world on
Mother's Day, where would it be and why? Would the location be different if she
was bringing you and the rest of the family with her? Why?
Some active mothers take the opportunity to race on Mother's Day with their
loved ones in a 5K or triathlon. Would your mother be interested in such an
event? Why or why not?
There are many wonderful gifts that you could get your mother for the holiday,
but everyone can make mistakes. What are some of the worst ideas you can think
of to give your mother on Mother's Day? Why would they be so bad?

the only florist in town says that he's sold out. What do you do to make sure
your mom has a bouquet of roses waiting for her when she wakes up?

families to have more kids. How would your family be different if you had
double or triple the amount of brothers and sisters? How difficult would such a
family be on your mother?
In Yugoslavia, Mother's Day seems more for the children then the moms
themselves. The children have a tradition of tying up their mother and
