When a Cancer mom is in her domain (the domestic sphere) that is going to be her space to be in absolute control of and your main mood should be "dutiful. " As a Leo, you tend to have a feisty spirit and don't like to be told what to do, and this may cause tensions.
Cancers tend to love things like holidays, because these sorts of traditions tend to center around two things they love greatly: family and food.

The holidays are this strange time when everyone is acting out of the past, or trying to project something that may not have to do with the truth, but with appearances.
