Earth holidays don't seem strange or foreign to me anymore. Last weekend was "Mother's Day", and celebrating it didn't seem weird at all-- it was normal, even though we didn't have anything like it in the Fire Nation.

You could make the argument that I've been here for too long, but I'm still not convinced it's a bad thing.

Can't see too much bad about pickin' up customs you like.

I suppose.

New things are good. It helps keep a person on their toes.

I'm not sure holidays fall under that category, though.

[identity profile] ironicnotcynic.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 04:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe not.

I find that even simple and small things, or particularly normal things like holidays, aren't often what they seem and can lead to some sort of interesting experience.

Mother's Day is basically what it seems, though. There's nothing really unsual there.

I guess my family's just sort of weird.

It is a nice chance to do something for my mom, since she lives sort of far away.

Mine is on another world right now. I'm glad I can worldhop.

That's good. So you get to see your mom often?

Well as our holidays go, Mother's Day's not a bad one to pick up.

[identity profile] peoplesprincess.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 06:47 pm (UTC)(link)
I agree. Some Earth holidays I find pointless, but this one isn't so bad.

I still like appreciating mine every day, though.

[identity profile] littlemissaria.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh I agree. It shouldn't be used as an excuse to spend the rest of the year being unappreciative. But it's still nice to have the excuse to go that little bit extra.

[identity profile] littlemissaria.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 08:05 pm (UTC)(link)
So, how did you celebrate? Did your mom enjoy it?

[identity profile] peoplesprincess.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 08:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes. We went to the beach. Last year we went to a spa.

[identity profile] littlemissaria.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 08:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, that sounds nice.

That's another great thing about Mother's Day - it's a chance to actually spend time with your mom.

[identity profile] peoplesprincess.livejournal.com 2011-05-11 08:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, she works a lot. But weekends are generally less busy for her.

hOW DO YOU CELEBRATE, uHH, mOTHERS,

[identity profile] peoplesprincess.livejournal.com 2011-05-12 05:04 pm (UTC)(link)
You do things with them, mostly. Pay attention to them. I'm not really sure why they have a separate day for it when you should really be paying attention to them every day, but apparently it's important here.
