It was a delight to me when I attended the celebration of last Mother’s Day at my cousin’s house. This special day falls on the second Sunday of May every year. This celebration provides the children with a special occasion to express their love and filial piety to their mother. This day is also the birthday of my cousin’s mother. On that day, my cousin bought a special present for his mother, a nice shawl. Moreover, he had special dinner with his mother’s favourite foods and with a cake, of course. Before the meal, his mother, he with all members of the family – his wife and children – gathered around the dinner table. We all sang ”Happy Birthday” to her. When the song finished, he and his wife gave the present to his mother and kissed her. Then his mother cut the cake. How touching this scene was! And I felt an undescribabie feeling overwheming my mind. This scene reminded me of my mother. I think this celebration should be observed by every child nationwide.
