Mother’s Day is nearly upon us so Estately set out to see how Americans differ when it comes to Google searches related to Mother’s Day, motherhood, celebrity moms, fictional moms, and all things mom-related. What we learned was people in Coal Country honor their mothers with mom-themed tattoos, your mama jokes are most popular in the South and Texas, New Jersey is focused on parental leave for moms, and Connecticut might just knock you out if mama says to.
