In the United States, Mother's Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday of May. In some countries, it was changed to dates that were significant to the majority religion, or to historical dates. Such as in most Arab countries, Mother's Day is always celebrated on the 21st of March, which is the Spring equinox, and in Great Britain, Mother's Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent. No matter what day you celebrate, brunch is always in order, well at least according to Mom!
Here are some fun images from our menu and photo collections. Though the prices and fashions sure have changed, the sentiment remains the same. Mom is hungry, feed her!
