Thoughts on Mother's Day

Thoughts on Mother's Day (Photo credit: mtsofan)

I’d just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Mothering Sunday. I hope you are all being well looked after by your family and enjoying time together.

If you do have time spare on your hands today though have you ever actually stopped to question where the term Mother’s Day comes from and the history behind it? Strangely it’s not all about flowers and chocolates!? Oh Thornton’s and Interflora will be sad!!!

It’s actually a christian festival that stems from the Roman Hilaria festival was held in honour of the mother goddess Cybele Interested? Then grab your cup of tea and read more …. Hmmmm I am sure you all have much better things to be doing though!!!???

Why not share with me how you’ve been celebrating? xxx
