Mother’s Day and Mothers’ Day – No Joke!

Regarding the use of the apostrophe, our logic is that we
remember one’s mother, thus Mother’s Day.  In British English, as opposed to
American English, it’s also possible for a group of people to celebrate their Mothers’ Day.
While this usage of the apostrophe is grammatically correct in England, it’s
not in common usage.
