Parent’s Day, or eobeoi nal 어버이날, designated May 8th every year, is a day to thank parents for their unconditional love and dedication. On this day, children make carnations at school and pin them on their parents’ chests, while adult children give bouquets with gifts (cash is the number one choice picked by parents, by the way).

After Ann Jarvis passed away, her daughter Anna Jarvis organized gatherings to honor and remember the mothers. Carnations were the flowers her mother loved.
