Street poll: How will you celebrate Mothers Day?

This Sunday 46 countries around the world will honour their mothers with this ancient Greek custom.

Australia is one of those countries that commemorates Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May.

Founders of the modern observance of Mothers Day were Americans Anna Jarvis and Julia Ward Howe.

It is an opportunity for people to express their gratitude to mothers and grandmothers for their positive input and commitment to families and society.

A heart-warming celebration, it has become heavily commercialised, with many businesses marketing products such as flowers, cards and chocolates as well as clothing and retail goods, to ensure they increase revenue while mothers are pampered and spoilt.

We asked people in Brisbane what they have in store for this Mothers Day.
