先週末は、母の日でしたね♪
今日は、ジェシー先生が
アメリカの母の日について
お話ししてくれます(*´▽`*)

Last weekend was Mother’s Day.  Did you do anything to celebrate?  In America, Father’s Day isn’t a very important holiday.  To be honest, I’m not sure when Father’s Day is, and I’m sure my father doesn’t know.  Mother’s Day on the other hand, is very important.  Today I want to talk about American Mother’s Day traditions.

 
The most popular Mother’s Day activity is going out to a restaurant.  Lunch is probably the most popular time, but dinner is also popular.  In fact, Mother’s Day is actually the busiest day all year for restaurants in America.  If you want to eat at a restaurant on this day, you had better make reservations!
 
Breakfast isn’t usually a very important meal in America.  Lots of people skip breakfast, and the people who do eat it, often eat alone.  People are too busy to eat a real breakfast normally.  This is why breakfast is actually a great way to start Mother’s Day.  It’s a chance to show your mother that this day is for her to relax and rest from all the work she normally does.  For many Americans, the best way to do this is called “breakfast in bed”.  The family will prepare a meal (usually eggs and toast, or pancakes) and carry it on a tray to the lucky mother’s bedroom when she wakes up.  There are special trays that are designed to be used on a bed, so she can just sit up in bed and eat breakfast.  My mother always said this was the ultimate luxury and way to start a relaxing day.
 
Another popular choice is to combine the restaurant plan, and breakfast.  This usually means brunch!  Brunch is a mix of breakfast and lunch, and usually starts around 10am, on Saturdays or Sundays.  Brunch is often considered a formal event, so people sometimes dress up in nice clothes to go out for brunch.  It’s also the only time everybody agrees it’s OK to drink alcohol in the morning!  Mimosas (champagne and orange juice) and Bloody Maries (vodka and spicy tomato juice) are common brunch cocktails.  There is usually a lot of food, from waffles and French toast to pizza and pastas.  The nice clothes, large amounts of food, and special cocktails make it a great way to celebrate mom!
 
Sorry fathers, nobody remembers your day in America.  I hope Japanese fathers are luckier than ours!
