Does China need its own Mother's Day?

It doesn't matter if we have our own day as long as you show your love to your mom.

As a child, I just took my mother for granted. When I grew up, especially when I became a mother, I realized how much my mom has sacrificed selflessly and how great she really is! They deserve not only our respect but our care and love as well. We Chinese have the tendency to keep everything to ourselves, even though we love tenderly deep in our hearts. We, more often than not, don't express it directly. In this regard, we should learn from Americans. Say ILU whenever you feel it and give her a hug or have a heart to heart chat or do some housework so that your mom can have a rest. What you can give your mother is not very important at all. What matters is that you should do something to show you love [her], as often as you can, not just on Mother's Day.
