Mother's Day

Did You Know?

On May 13, 2007 Mother’s Day will observe its 100th anniversary in the United States, and for greeting-card companies, that’s cause for celebration. That’s because Americans are expected to purchase more than 150 million Mother’s Day cards. In fact, according to Hallmark research, Mother’s Day is the third-largest card-sending holiday in the United States. In response, Hallmark is offering more than 1,700 card designs.

Hallmark is not alone. American Greetings Mother’s Day card line-up will feature designs for “every kind of mother,” including single moms, working moms, stepmothers, godmothers, mothers of twins, mothers of pets, foster moms and those who are “just like a mother to me.”
