Sunday is Mother’s Day, and while we know it’s important to celebrate mom, there are some who don’t really consider this a real holiday, and think it was something made up by Hallmark. But do most Americans feel that way?
Well, according to a new YouGov poll:
- 60% of Americans do indeed consider Mother’s Day a “real” holiday.
- That number increases to 63% when you ask moms.
- But there are 30% of people who believe folks wouldn’t celebrate Mother’s Day if it weren’t for pressure from commercial entities.
- That’s sentiment is also true for 29% of moms.
- Not surprising, different generations have different opinions on Mother’s Day.
- 71% of those 65 and above consider Mother’s Day a real special occasion.
- But only 62% of 45 to 64-year-olds, and 53-54% of 18 to 44-year-olds say the same.
- But just because some people don’t think Mother’s Day is a real special occasion, doesn’t mean they are going to forget about mom on Sunday.
- In fact, 61% of those who believe it is a commercial holiday still plan to celebrate it with mom.
