Mother’s Day

On Sunday it is Mother’s Day once again.

Here are some statistics published today:

90 % of Austrians are positive towards mother’s day, only 10 % think it is an annoying duty

For 2 out of 3 Austrians the day is something special. 50 % of all Austrians do something special on the day, like visiting relatives.

That means for 1 out of 3 Austrians the is just as regular as any given sunday. Interestingly, more women tend to think this way than men.

3 out of 4 Austrians nevertheless think that mother’s day is a profit-inducer for florists and gastronomy. (70 % of those still buy presents for their mothers.)

If you think that is a little bi-polar, then get this: 5 % of all Austrians see mother’s day as a good honorary day for mothers but feel it is an annoying duty at the same time.

    I agree about Mother’s Day being slightly annoying. I have to drive all over that day to visit all the Mom’s I know. My Mom’s are older and are impartial between an ecard and paper card, so I created an online tribute at FacesofMoms.com.

    So what do you think of Mother’s Day, Georg? Do you regard it as a special day?
