Should Mother's Day be a National Holiday?

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A national food chain is trying to help give mother's a little more recognition. Kentucky Fried Chicken is petitioning Congress to make Mother's Day a federal holiday.

They have set-up a section on their website where you can sign the petition and view the actual letter being sent to congress.

 We caught up with one mom at a KFC in Yakima today to see what they thought about the idea

"I think mothers are very important I really do. That would be awesome, said Kathy Kolve.

If you would like to support KFC's efforts you can also text the word "mom" to 36617.
