Mother’s Day Facts You Didn’t Know

22 Apr

Mothers-Day-Gift-GuideMoms are the embodiment of eternal love and devotion. As inherently selfless creatures, you know that they deserve a day all to themselves, one that celebrates everything that they stand for. Mother’s Day annually observed in many countries around the world on the 2nd Sunday in May is a perfect day to celebrate your mother!

While mom is a good enough reason to celebrate Mother’s Day, there are a lot of things worth knowing about this happy spring holiday. This year, impress your mom with more than just a bouquet of flowers and a heartfelt Mother’s Day gift… tell her one of these interesting facts that she probably didn’t even know.

Mothering Sunday

While the modern  Mother’s Day didn’t evolve until years later in the beginning of the 20th century, the holiday has its roots in the Christian celebration of “Mothering Sunday.” In the UK and parts of Europe, Mothering Sunday fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent, where parishioners would return to their “mother” church.

First Mother’s Day Celebration

Since the dawn of time we have been thankful for our mothers, but it took persistent activists to really get the holiday on the nationally recognized level. After the death of her mother in 1908, Anna Jarvis, an activist and founder of Mother’s Day as we know her today, sought to host a celebration to thank all mothers for all they do. She held the first Mother’s Day celebration in a Methodist Church in West Virginia.

Why The Date Changes

After Jarvis successfully held her first Mother’s Day, she sought out to make it a national celebration. After years of lobbying, she finally got the attention of President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. He proclaimed that the second Sunday in May, no matter what the date, would belong to moms across the nation.

Misc Mother’s Day Facts

  • Anna Jarvis, the founder of the modern concept of Mother’s Day, remained unmarried and childless throughout her entire life.
  • According to National Retail Federation on average people spend $168.94 on gifts for Mother’s Day
  • Over 130 million Mother’s Day cards are exchanged annually making it the third-largest card-sending holiday in the U.S.
  • There are around 2 billion mothers in the world
  • Each second there are 4 babies born in the world

What is Passover?

Passover is a festival of freedom which commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt.

Jews all over the world celebrate Passover for seven days and, while the date varies from year to year, it’s always the same on the Jewish lunar calendar: the 15th day of Nissan, the first month of the Hebrew monthly calendar year, typically falling in mid-spring.

The main ritual of Passover is the Seder — a festive meal with family which occurs on the first night of the holiday. During the Seder a number of symbolic foods are served including wine, matzah bread, and other all kosher dishes.

Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ’s and is considered the most important holiday in Christian world. It’s called a movable feast because it doesn’t fall on a set date every year, as most holidays do. Instead, Catholic celebrate Easter on the first Sunday following the full moon after the vernal equinox on March 21. And Orthodox Christians typically celebrate the holiday a week or two after the Western churches following the Julian calendar. This year the Western world will observe Easter on March, 27 and Orthodox celebrations will fall on May, 1.

In our catalog you’ll find a surprise for any taste and budget. But you don’t want to wait until the last minute to surprise them! Order soon and use code GBETR16 to SAVE $10 on your gifts until March 18, 2016.

All our festive Easter gift baskets are full of bright colors and the holiday necessities. We made sure each of our springy-themed hamper includes colorful Easter eggs as a symbol of spring and new life. And it’s not just a decoration, the eggs are made of premium milk, dark and white chocolate to satisfy the craving of both kids and adults.

Easter bunnies make a centerpiece of all holiday baskets. Representing fertility and new life they are enjoyed by both children and adults. Our hampers feature both adorable plush bunnies and chocolate ones. By the way the first edible Easter bunnies appeared in Germany during the early 19th century, and were made of pastry and sugar. These days they are mostly made of chocolate or marzipan and there are over 90 million Easter bunnies produced each year.

Happy International Women’s Day!

08 Mar

Women…
A symbol of modesty & mercy,
Healing for the whole of humanity,
Gentle her touch, so her words,
Bless the woman for her powers,

Women, the truth and the love,
Showers on children and her love,
Looking nothing, seeking no rewards,
Only piety flowing through her glance.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!
