So, to recap. In the UK, Mother’s Day is different to the US, but Father’s Day’s the same. Australia’s Mother’s Day matches North America, but their Father’s Day is in September. This cannot be the world Hallmark intended.
Before I go to bed, I want to remind y’all that Mother’s Day was started as an anti-war protest, so that no mother whould have to mourn the death of her child in violent conflict. I’d like to suggest we return to that, ignoring the pablum foisted on by capitalism and Hallmark.
so on this created-for-capitalism-but-why-not-sure-it’s-nice-to-phone-your-mom-if-ya-got-one holiday...we gotta point to the totality. to my friends out there who have no hallmark aisle, for whatever reason, i see you. i love you. mother means anything you need it to mean today.
It’s #InternationalNursesDay and a chance to recognise the work of our nurses across the GM health & social care system. They provide an immense range and depth of specialist skills combined with the hallmark of compassionate care.
I'm not a big Hallmark holiday person; I have a high-sensitivity bs meter and also they seem designed to make people feel excluded & sad. However, I do like the reminder to do thoughtful things for people in our lives and make sure they feel loved and appreciated.
If you want to honor #MothersDay as its founder intended, show your mom how much you care for her — but skip the Hallmark card and flowers. https://t.co/2mw3qHU9Tz
Happy #MothersDay 💐! Wishing every mom a day filled with love and appreciation 💜. RT and tag a mom in your life to wish her a Happy Mother's Day (and don't forget the card 😉💌)!
It's ok if your relationship with your mom or as a mom doesn't look perfect and shiny like a Hallmark card. Your path is your own, and your uniqueness is part of what gives you unlimited value as a human. If anyone makes you feel differently, send them my way.
Most of these days originated in US. Typically with no native, indigenous culture of it's own, they started this X,Y,Z days to celebrate something. But the one who actually made these days popular were Hallmark and Archies in India. https://t.co/jnN5dVW4Hx
Respect and love today to folks estranged from their birth parents, children of dead mothers, mothers of dead children, non-binary parents, folks who’ve miscarried, and anyone else who finds this Hallmark holiday more bitter and twisty than sweet.

She doesn’t think! That’s her entire problem. She doesn’t know how to think! All she knows is how to parrot opposition and hate. And she packages her sophomoric rhetoric as the truth and justification for socialism. She’s the true hallmark of an idiot in office.

Mother's Day was actually started by Anna Jarvis in honor of her mother who was a peace activist. She made the demand for it to become an official holiday. However she was appalled by the way Hallmark commercialized the festival.
We will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary as a label with a very special release.

While we celebrate Mothers today, it might be a good idea to read this from @ShelleyZalis
Yes, the Motherhood Penalty is real.
No, a Hallmark Card doesn't make up for this!

Mother's Day isn't about chocolate & Hallmark cards. It's about respecting life. We can't respect mothers without ending war, preparation for war & our assault on the ecosystem which sustains us. https://t.co/uROzX5XDnp
Happy Sunday I want to lay in bed and watch tv and cry but because today is a Hallmark Holiday I have to leave my house
Americans really never question these Hallmark holidays that solely exist to stimulate the retail sector
“Hallmark’s gendered story…does not include single mothers, nor incarcerated mothers…queer mothers, mothers separated from their children thru residential schools, missing mothers, mothers whose child will never be able to make them breakfast in bed.” https://t.co/kFYV80OTsA
Hallmark holidays. 👎🏽
Not what Ms. Anna Jarvis the creator of the holiday intended- and fought against.
It’s a story worth looking up. #mountainmama https://t.co/WBS0NQCAzU
So I am sick and solo parenting with the Pip this Mother’s Day. Fortunately I have decided officially that Hallmark holidays are bunk, so I won’t be disappointed at the lack of ceremony. Which is good, because, well, I’m sick and solo parenting.
We went out for cupcakes.
Joy is also the old lady who shops at Hallmark.
Happy Sunday to my peeps who struggle today due to not having a good relationship (or maybe no relationship at all) with their mom. A ton of us have (or have had) a difficult time on this day & don't fit into that Hallmark ideal ❤ It's ok! You're not alone ❤ Sending you love ❤
Happy #MothersDay to anyone who mothers—whether that is a biological mother, a friend, a sister, a brother, a father, a neighbor. And a special shoutout to anyone who’s lost their mother or has a complicated relationship with their mother. Mothering is not a Hallmark job. 💜
if you’re going to celebrate, try making your own card! it is way more special than something hallmark is cranking out
It was created by Hallmark in the 1800's to generate another revenue stream. #TrueStory
Well, sometimes Hallmark says it best...
Can we expand this to include all Hallmark Holidays?
That’s the hallmark of EPL, crazy!
This is why I despise the left/identity politics (a hallmark of their ideology). This man is merely a lawyer, defending a client. Everyone deserves a fair defense/trial. We do not do kangaroo courts.
But in this case, the kangaroo court won. Pathetic.
Friendly reminder that if you’re crabby and impatient to maybe not show up to a busy ass restaurant just to complain. Idc what damn Hallmark holiday it is
on this hallmark-holiday called "mother's day" please be sure to consider other animals, who give birth and are usually denied motherhood because humans have placed a greater value on their "products" (i.e. eggs, milk, offspring). appreciate and respect all mothers everyday.
happy hallmark holiday! celebrate your mom by NOT purchasing a candle, dying flowers or soap! buying gifts and pre-made cards are a meaningless social obligation pushed on us by huge companies to make themselves richer 💕🤦♀️💗

Remember these creepy little waifs? 👶 They were created by Amarillo-gal Betsey Clark and caught the eye of Hallmark in the ‘60. By the ‘70s her illustrations were LIT-erally everywhere! 😱 Happy Mother’s Day! ✨💕
This Mother's Day I am thinking of all the sisters who had to be a mother to their siblings because their family wasn't a Hallmark card.
Honor your mother and all moms everyday, not just the day designated by Hallmark to sell more stuff.
It's an ancient holiday/celebration. The American version was created to honor grieving Civil War mothers. The founder resented the commercialization and protested Hallmark and candy makers for their role in commercializing the day.
Happy Mother's Day to my mother, Anita Hallmark! She is the epitome of a Godly mother!
It's not a democracy. And you are thick as shit and should fuck off.
So very true, it is one of the most differcuilt days I too deal with. My mom physical left 4 years ago from Alizimher. My only child died 2 years ago. So I sit here with TV on for noise, remembering past Mother Day's. Really getting more depressed with these Hallmark Days.
AH, yes this crap commercialism called Mothers day...
Sandwiched between two pains I am.
I know mum 💜 did the best she could but not attached, and I love my 3 that never made to this world alive. 👼👼👼
Wheres your card for that version?

Hallmark doesn’t make the kind of card some mothers need today. We want to THANK all CASAs whose instincts, experience, and kindness drive them in mentoring and advocating for their youth. #MothersDay2019 #CASA

Thanks for the Hallmark card. Only non-stupid tweet you've put out today.
And that’s the hallmark of a crap program. Foster critical thinkers not cookbook medics
Did you send a Hallmark card and arrange flower delivery to your beloved mother?
These and other cute quotes Mom is sure to adore at Hallmark!
On this Hallmark Holiday, I’m thinking of all those who have lost children, whose children are living yet lost, and those who suffer because their mothers are lost to them in life and death. There is no “mother’s day” without loss.
I hate these Hallmark holidays
I'd buy some deebs themed Hallmark cards. I'd finally get across the messages I truly want for the holidays, or when my coworkers are acting up.

Hallmark holidays are the worst. Why are there so many expectations?
It is all an estimation and it has error. Some people take Hawkeye as factual and it has error in every hallmark. People up to this point have either not realized it or are accepting the error. Most I feel are the latter.
6 hours and 4 tweets in, a Hallmark card. Too inarticulate to make a simple well-wish all of America cherishes.
