DannyFenton123 Posted May 3, 2016 Share Posted May 3, 2016 Mother's Day is apparently May 8 this year. I was reminded about it today, and it's definitely shaken me. Due to the fact that my mum is dead, this is hands down the shittiest time of the year for me. Worse than the day my mum actually died, because at least people don't go around talking about it all the time. I can totally understand why people want to celebrate that day. Mums are awesome; they raise you and love you and it's a cool idea to have a day where people appreciate them. I don't want to rain on anybody's parade, but the problem is I have to go to school for the week before the actual day. If it was up to me, I'd rather stay home and write but I can't. And people are really cheery about it, and teachers make you do cards in lessons. They don't really know what to do with me, so I'm either asked to write a card to my grandmother (which is a whole 'nother problem) or just kind of sit there. And if you're doing either of those things, other kids ask why you don't celebrate Mother's Day. And boy, is that fun! Not that I mind talking about it - what would I be doing posting this if I did - but everybody else kind of record scratches. They either go really quiet after an 'Oh, I'm so sorry. But she's always in your heart!' or start asking hilarious questions like 'Did your mom go to heaven or hell?' The latter category is kind of rare, but they make for some interesting stories to tell later to my family. This year the person I'm worried about most is my Math teacher, who tends to go on about certain topics not related to math. I'm nearly certain he'll start on Mother's Day and how you should respect your mum and stuff. Great, but I want to stay home and miss that. I don't want to talk to anybody I'm not close to around this time. I'm not really sure what my topic is for this forum post. Anybody else have some holidays that annoy them?
