ママ、ありがとう!

9 May

今日は母の日 (Today is Mothers Day).

Last year at this time, my kids made a “Mothers Day” dinner for their mother.

Today we’re gonna buy a 「母の日ケーキ」 (“Mothers Day cake”) from 不二家 (“Fujiya Confections”).

(I put a couple photos of one of this company’s shops on this post that I wrote about the “Kabuki Theatre”).

In Japan, young children commonly give their mother a handwritten card for Mothers Day.
But after that, it’s common in Japan for people to give their mother flowers on this day.

How is Mothers Day commonly celebrated in your country? What will you do for your mother today?

    >You didn’t do anything for Mothers Day?

    No, I didn’t do anythig…

    I have never done this kind of things…

    No,No, I tell a lie.

    When I was a kindergartner,

    I gave her a letter with a drawing.

    That’s all.

    Because I’m embarrassed to do such a thing.

    But, in the future, maybe I’ll do it.

    >“Problem child” or “Bad kid”.

    Thank you, I got it.

      I guess you’re not a “problem child”.
      It’s Japanese style to be reserved. Feelings are implied in Japan…so I’m sure your mother knows your “true feelings”.

    I did nothing.
    I’m a 親不孝者.
    親不孝者…
    Do you know the word with the same meaning in English?
