The Day for Mothers, May 18.
This coming Sunday, May 18th, is the day to remember Mothers; the symbol of that day is the White Carnation [Poni Moi] placed on the suit of men, and on the fronts of women and children. It shows you remember your mother who took care of you from when you were a baby until you were an old man or woman. Whether she has died or she is still living.
