Celebrating Mother’s Day



By Great Performances

We set aside the second Sunday in May each year to celebrate the mothers in our lives (although really, we should celebrate them every day!) Mothers – biological mothers, chosen mothers, and mother figures – play such a significant role in our lives. From the moment we are connected, they give us unconditional love, unflagging support, and even the tough love we need to become the best version of ourselves.

As we reflect on the countless things mothers do for their children, it’s only right that we take a day to honor and celebrate them.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite ways to celebrate the moms in our lives. From special meals that you can cook at home to fun experiences outside the home, we’ve got you covered.
