Mother’s Day Cards
Mother’s Day cards are the most popular category of greeting card bought by the British public after birthday cards. Sorry dads, but Father’s Day cards come far down the ranking after them.
That’s the UK. The ranking of the most popular category of card is different in the USA. There, Mother’s Day cards come after wedding cards, get well cards, and what I would call inspirational cards.
Well, whatever the American public spend their money on, buying a Mother’s Day card is almost sacrosanct in the UK. It is expected as a sign that the familial bonds are strong. And you really don’t have to stand in a card shop and watch the checkout to see that Mother’s Day is important. Just catch a bus or stand in a bus queue and you will see people with boxes of chocolates, flowers, and cards in their hands.
