How is Mother's Day Celebrated in Canada
Mother's Day is celebrated in a traditional way right across Canada by taking Mom out to brunch or dinner, sending flowers, giving gift certificates, and generally offering a little extra reverence to the mothers in our lives.
Expect restaurants - especially family restaurants and ones offering a nice brunch - to be busier than usual.
