Mother’s Day is right around the corner and the holiday means something special for everyone who celebrates it. Ahead of the holiday, we decided to take a look at Twitter to see how people are feeling about it this year. After all, we’re living through an unprecedented global health crisis, and mother’s day is going to look very different for many of us this year.
As you might imagine, folks are feeling a certain way. And by “certain,” we mean uncertain. From businesses being temporarily closed to travel restrictions, some people are unable to visit with their moms or even eat at their favorite Mother’s Day brunch spot. There’s a lot in flux around Mother’s Day 2020. Let’s take a look at some tweets that perfectly capture this moment and other tweets that will definitely make you feel better about it.
There are classic jokes about making babies.

Mothers Day is coming up on May 10th. My mom was the greatest… she always let one of the kids lick the cake off the beaters after making a cake but I knew I was her favorite because for me she always turned the mixer off first. pic.twitter.com/VYdfwXNPH1— Swedish Canary (@SwedishCanary) April 16, 2020

A stroke of marketing genius (Mother’s day is on May 10 this year).
As you can see, Mother’s Day 2020 is shaping up to be a wild one. While most of the sentiments are probably the same as last year, there are some new challenges that are making the holiday harder to plan than usual. May 10, 2020, is the big day. If all else fails, please just give your mom a call.
