Amazing Mothers Deserve Funny Cards
Mother's Day, or Mothering Sunday, is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent each year and is a brilliant excuse to send your mummy a funny (or rude and funny) card to show her how much you think of her. Funny Mother's Day cards are a relatively new invention! Originally an ancient tradition, the Christian church in Europe absorbed this into a celebration honouring the ‘Mother Church'. It gradually became a time for people who lived away from home see their mothers and so over time came to be more family oriented. Over the years this day has lost its religious element and become more and more just about mums! This year, Mothering Sunday is on March 27th, so you'd better get your skates on quickly and buy her that Mother's Day card and gift!
In the US, commercialisation was fully in swing by the twenties and there, as here, it is now celebrated by sending Mother's Day cards and flowers. Humorous cards have been around almost as long as standard ones and today is no exception! With the tradition of giving cards in the US, the UK was not far behind and it just wouldn't be Mother's Day without a card and flowers, would it!?
Mothers are the often unsung heroes of the household; whatever you call her, Mum, Mother, Mummy or Mater, she deserves the best, so make sure you send her a nice bright card to show her how much you care! If your mum likes a laugh, we have funnier cards, and we also have naughty, cheeky and downright rude cards if that's your mum's taste! Only you know.
Mums get just one day a year when we show them what a Super-mum they are to is, so go on and push the boat out. As well as a humorous Mother's Day card, how about taking them out for a Mother's day lunch or make the meal for them at home? At very least, make sure you get them some nice flowers – and if you make sure you know which flower is their favourite, you can really show them how much you appreciate them!
Now she might not tell you and if you ask, she may out and out deny it (to save you a penny or two, no doubt), but here's betting that most mums like to be remembered on Mother's day. After all, she's been your mummy and looked after you most of her married life, cooked and even changed your nappy when you were a baby. She's always been there, you'd better let her know how much it's all meant, yes?! What better way than to send a humorous or rude Mother's Day card to make her laugh. Remember your mother-in-law, too and get in her good books with a card that she'll remember all year!
So, remember to show her how much you care. Get your card and present early so your mum gets it in plenty of time for her special day. We've got everything from the funny to the rude cards and some that are rather close to the mark. But you know your mum's taste in cards! We have some nice sloppy and more traditional Mother's Day cards to show her that you're thinking of her. Above all, remember that whichever card you choose, sloppy, rude, or funny, make sure your Mother's Day card it's on time!
