'Happy FILL IN THE BLANK Day' too rampant

It seems to be getting crazy.

For example a cashier saying Happy Valentines Day or Happy St. Patrick's Day OR Happy Mother's Day to someone they don't even KNOW.

Or Happy Easter!

The other day I was at the bank machine. A man was at the one beside me. The bank "greeter" at a desk near us & near the door said loudly (It could only have been to us!) Don't forget Mother's Day!!! At first I didn't even realize she was saying it to us & then the man turned to her & said, "I'm an orphan." (quite seriously)

And so she said, "Well, maybe you have a sister or someone to remember."

I was sort of shocked & teed off. I didn't comment or anything, but thought how awful it would be if, for example, one's Mother who they were quite close to, had died the day before or something.

I don't get it with this "Happy this" & "Happy that day" from perfect strangers.

Wouldn't it be nice if people could be pleasant with each other all the time & smile on just an ordinary day. Perhaps say, "I hope you have a pleasant day" or something - but even THAT is risky - they could be on their way to a beloved's funeral - or on their way to the hospital to see a dear, very ill friend, etc.

But how about a smile, or looking pleasantly at others?
