It’s Mother’s Day. Did you say thanks to mom today?
You know we’ve got a colloquial saying, “for mom and apple pie.” The way I heard it, it’s basically a way of saying something is very American. This tongue-in-cheek saying has its origins in World War II, where soldiers were quoted that they missed “mom and apple pie” back home.
Of course, the other version of the tale was that they were fighting for “mom and apple pie,” too.
