Mother's Day

NEW YORK, NY– Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12th. If calling Mom is always part of how you celebrate you aren’t alone.  We were curious about how our customer show mom the love, so we took a look at how Mother’s Day compares to other Sundays on Verizon’s wireless network.

Did you know:

  • Mother's Day is one of the busiest Sundays of the year on the Verizon network? Father's Day is usually a close second.

  • In 2017, more calls were made on Mother's Day than any other Sunday that year, up 8.2% over a typical Sunday.

  • In 2018, Mother's Day was the second busiest call day of any Sunday - up 11% over other Sundays. In first place was the Sunday before Christmas (though it was super close - less than a one percent difference).

  • While Mother's Day is usually the busiest Sunday of the year for calling, it's not the busiest calling day of the year. Weekdays typically lead the way in call volume.

Mother’s Day isn't just a busy time for our network. Getting just the right gift for Mom is on everyone’s mind. The National Retail Federation projects Mother’s Day will deliver a record $25 billion in sales this year with 84% of U.S. adults saying they plan to honor and celebrate the women in their lives.
