History of Mother’s Day –
Ever thought about why there is only 1 day in our lives when we celebrate our moms? It’s not always like if you will ask this question from her, she will reply in the same way she does when you ask about her trip. So, let’s celebrate our moms this Mother’s day, but first let’s understand why we celebrate her only 1 day.
Mother’s Day and the commemoration of motherhood can be traced back to the Ancient Greeks. At their spring festival, they honored the goddess Rhea, known as the Mother of the Gods. Since at least the 16th century, Mothering Sunday has been a part of the Christian calendar in the United Kingdom. According to a survey, Mother’s Day is now celebrated in over 152 countries around the world.
Intrigued? Don’t satisfy with too low too soon. We’ve more to offer. We’ve curated a special list of fun and indifferent things to do this Mother’s Day.
Fun things to do on Mother’s Day –
1. Set up a date for her
It’s time to bring out your inner hopeless romantic soul and spoil your mother with all the love she expects. A date with her husband is what she wants! Plan a dinner date for her, she will be intimidated just by a small effort of yours.
If you’re a good cook, impress your Mom & Dad by inviting them for dinner. Even if you aren’t, you are welcome to surprise them with a meal as long as you don’t burn the food or the house down.
2. Binge watch her fave show/movie
You’ve probably spent a significant amount of time in front of the television, so why not do it “with” your mother? If you want to go the extra mile, mail her a cup of tea and a basket of popcorn, along with a recommended viewing time for a favorite film—bonus points if it features mother-daughter dynamics like Steel Magnolias.
And if you’re away from her then call or FaceTime her to discuss her favorite lines and topics like “Don’t you think Dylan McDermott just keeps getting more attractive?” “Did you know Shelby’s house is now a real-life B&B?” someone else asks.
3. Go for a stroll with her
Get some fresh air by going for a walk outside with your mother. Going for a long walk or a short hike will feel great, especially before you gorge yourself on Mother’s Day treats.
When you’ve finished all the sitcoms, it’s time to explore the world with her. An evening stroll with her is a perfect idea for your Mother’s Day celebration. During the stroll, you can talk about life, career, and anything she should know.
4. Pack for a picnic with her friends
If you’re away from your mother then send a cute picnic tin filled with goodies she can enjoy on a blanket in the backyard. Set up a blanket at your house and call her so you can have a double picnic.
And if you’re with her then call all her friends and take them to a fun-filled picnic. You can set up a few favorite games for her, pack her favorite snack, go to her favorite destination, and of course, call her best of friends. It will be the BEST surprise for her.
5. Celebrate her
A virtual happy hour can bring the entire family together from all over the country. Send out a funny mimosa recipe in advance and refer to them as “mom”-osas!
Make each family member arrive at the “party” with a funny Zoom background if you want to make everyone laugh. We are drawn to one of these wonderful Country Living scenarios.
6. Cook with her
Spend the day putting together care packages for organizations in need, a cause close to both of your hearts. Helping others will make you feel warm and comfortable on the inside.
Prepare a favorite family recipe at home while Mom does the same in her kitchen, as she presumably taught you how to cook. Even better, enlist the children’s assistance so they can observe Grandma crimping the dough or icing the cake in real-time.
7. Virtual game show
Mother’s Day falls during that lovely time of year when the weather is delightfully warm (but not scorching) and the trees and flowers are in bloom, so why not take the party outside with a garden tea party—in person or virtually?
