What is Mother’s Day and what does it mean? Back in 1914, Woodrow Wilson, the 28th president of the USA signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day to be held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers. Mother’s day is coming up in May 14 which means this Sunday. This has become a holiday that most people adopt. Even immigrants who have moved here have started to take part of national tradition. Hoover students explain what they are doing for their mothers. They get ready for Mother’s Day in multiple ways. Some people are giving their mother gifts, and others go the simple route and tell them how much they care about mothers.

    “What I’m going to give to my mother with flowers and some perfumes and plushes,” expressed sophomore Jose Partida.  

Other Hoover students have also answered in similar ways. But not everyone is doing something for their mother on this day.

In a random survey of  20 students, three students answered with that they’re going to do nothing for their mothers because “don’t have money to get a present.” Two students stated they never have and don’t really celebrate it. Out of the remaining 15 students, six are buying a present and the other nine are just telling their mother that they love them.
