Happy Mother’s Day!
For those who may have forgotten that Mother’s Day is this week, be grateful you don’t live in South Korea! Each year, May 8 is Parent’s Day in South Korea. The holiday was formerly known as Mother’s Day, but changed as to not leave out the fathers.
Like in the United States, it is the day where children in South Korea pay special regards to their parents’ love and affection and say thank you for all that their parents have done for them. Flowers are a common gift (carnations and roses are the most popular), and time is spent with their parents.
As a reminder, Mother’s Day here in the US is this Sunday, May 12. Do something special for the great mothers and grandmothers in your life. Children, make breakfast for you mom and let her relax. If there is distance between you and your mom, give her a call, send flowers, and let her know you are thinking about her. If your mother enjoys baseball and you are in the Corpus Christi area, y’all could go to the RoughRiders game on Sunday at 1:05! The Rangers are in Houston playing the Astros Sunday at 1:10.
Above all, enjoy the holiday with your family!
In ‘Riders News:
The RoughRiders have a much-needed day off today after their four-game series in Midland. They begin a new series with Corpus Christi tomorrow night at 7 p.m. Neil Ramirez will start for the ‘Riders and will face Hooks right-hander Jake Buchanan.
Frisco returns to Dr Pepper Ballpark Monday night against the RockHounds to begin an eight-game home stand.
