While we at Zippia love jobs, we also love our moms. So, in honor of Mother’s Day, we decided to deep dive into mother’s day, and what Mother’s Day 2020 will look like in the age of Coronavirus.
We surveyed over 500 American adults on their mother’s day plans. Will they break social distancing to celebrate mother’s day?
Of course, many people live with their mothers and don’t have to make the difficult choice. Which begs the question, how are they doing? Are people quarantined with their moms in higher spirits, or really missing their space?
We highlighted our main findings above, but keep reading to see what else we discovered and some fun charts.
15% of all respondents said they would break quarantine to see their mom, but some age groups are more willing to bend the quarantine than others. 35-44 years old were the most adamant, with 22% saying they would break quarantine to see their mom on the day. That’s twice as much as 18-24 year olds.
Who is most likely not to break quarantine? Those aged 45-54, a whopping 35% said they would not see their mothers due to the coronavirus.
Yes. Or at least our respondents who are quarantined with their moms report higher levels of happiness.
While many people are often eager to leave the nest, there is something to be said for the comforting presence of your mom during stressful times. No doubt those who are choosing to see their mother on mother’s day regardless are hoping to receive that comfort and normality.
Coronavirus has forced many to reevaluate their mother’s day plans. Ultimately, many are trying to celebrate as normally as possible, in spite of the circumstances.
Only 3% of all survey respondents said they wouldn’t see their mother because they “didn’t want to.” The other 97% want to see their mom– with many are only kept apart due to circumstances, coronavirus included.
No doubt mother’s day phone calls will be longer, and the number of Zoom meetings will be through the roof this year. But, isn’t it nice everyone loves their mom so much?
