Mother's Day is a problem for me because it has morphed into something of a retail juggernaut, akin to Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day.
Christmas should be a season for spending quality time with our family and friends, not shopping and spending every penny we have and then some.
Nearly all religions and beliefs around the world have some sort of Holiday that center around this time of year.
Bit by bit the mystery and wonder is being sucked out of Halloween. Maybe it's time to strike back.
