"Do it your way. If it feels right for you to ignore it, then do so. It doesn’t have to carry on being a special day for you; it might have been sufficient that you celebrated when she was alive.
For others, it might feel right to keep the day special, to remember their Mum and to mark it in some way. And again this is fine. And again, you can do it in your way: celebrate it, perhaps, by doing something you did regularly (go out for a meal, play a game of bingo or take a trip to the seaside) or use it as a more solemn day of remembrance by visiting a special place you had, taking flowers to the grave, attending a church service or just spending the day alone to reflect."
