Mother's Day in Japan

Did you know it is the 'Mother's Day' today, May 8th this year, in Japan (the 2nd Sunday of May every year)? And did you also know that the long-time most popular present for Mother's Day is carnations in Japan??! http://www.mothersdaycelebration.com/story-of-anna-jarvis.html

According to the florist in a local shop, the red carnations used to be most popular but people buy more pink or yellowish carnations nowadays.

I have got a present from my husband on behalf of my daughter and my daughter gave me full-body massage in the morning.

The Golden Week (long spring holiday season) is over and back to the routine from tomorrow.
