What does this mom want for Mother’s Day? A pair of apostrophes for this sign (isn’t, Mother’s Day), that’s what.
They were probably spooked by the “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks, and the apostrophe versions thereof!

Actually it’s Mothers’ Day – a day for ALL mothers not just one.

Jan, the way I’ve always read about it, Mother’s Day founder Anna Jarvis wanted it to be “Mother’s Day” and not “Mothers’ Day” because it’s a day when one honors one’s own mother, not all the mothers of the world. This article is commonly cited as a source for this: http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/story.html?id=c942370c-cdbb-43b2-af59-71ad4b546854
But if you know otherwise, please share your source. Always happy to learn something new.
