My family doesn't really get into holidays. I've never done the whole Mother's Day Card or Father's Day card thing. We don't send stuff for Easter. We send out a Christmas card for the yearly update and we will send birthday cards, but other than a phone call, we don't celebrate holidays. I don't know why. We just never have.
By contrast, my husband's family does celebrate holidays. I can always expect a card for St. Patty's Day and Valentine's Day and a giant box of candy for Easter. Etc. Etc. The first year I received a card, I was really stunned. And more stunned that my MIL stuck some money in it. It was St. Patty's Day and why am I getting money? Hubby had to explain that this was totally normal.
So what do I expect for Mother's Day? Nothing. Hubby never sent out cards when he was single (despite the fact that they were sent to him). I at least send out birthday cards which is what my family does. I would like to note that I'm the one who picks the cards for his family. And I've done that since we were first married and at the time, I hardly could keep who his Aunts and Uncles were straight. So hubby won't be doing anything really specially this Sunday. I expect he will be working and that I will have to take him to work (because his car broke down Friday). I will be shocked if my parent's send a card. I imagine that they won't and that's fine. And I bet my MIL will say something if not send something. She really doesn't need to. I think it's a waste of money and paper.
So my mother's day will be like any other day I expect. It's a made up holiday anyway. Mothers should be celebrated every day. So please, don't wish me a Happy Mother's Day. I don't really get into holidays. Thank you.
