How to Celebrate Mother's Day

 
 
Did you know Mother's Day has its roots in ancient Greek festivals honoring Rhea, the Mother of the Gods?
 
The modern American holiday officially began in 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday in May a day to honour all the mothers of mere mortals like us.
 
One of the best ways to celebrate Mother's Day is to give your mom the day off. Let her take it easy and relax while the rest of the family does the work.
 
 
Start with Breakfast in Bed.
Many families begin Mother's Day with breakfast in bed. Usually Dad and the Kids will let mom sleep late as they go into the kitchen and prepare her favorite meal. A Mother's Day breakfast can consist of anything your mom likes.

After the food is cooked arrange everything nicely on a tray. Don't forget the vase with a single flower. With spring here, the children can pick a flower from the garden outside. When everything is ready carefully carry the tray and mom's favorite sections from a newspaper or magazine up to her bedroom. Cards and small presents from the children can be placed on the tray before it is presented to mom in bed.
 
 
Consider giving her a gift.
Be it a stuffed animal and a card, or a new patio set for the deck, a gift is always appreciated. Flowers and chocolates are one option, or consider a photo collage of her as a mother. A fancy recipe book of all the family recipes would be nice as well. And you can't go wrong with a gift certificate to her favorite shop! Think about your mother as a person; think about what she likes to do. Show you know her by choosing a thoughtful gift.
 
 
Devise a plan for the day. 
Send her off to the spa.You have tons of options, depending on where you live, what your mother likes to do, and how much money you can spend. Is she always on the go? One choice is to spend the day relaxing at home - run her a bubble bath, watch some movies and reminisce about the past.
 
Or you can take her out - go to a museum, a waterpark, the cinema, a play, or pack a picnic. Another option is to give her a break and send her off for a day alone, perhaps at the spa for a manicure, pedicure, and haircut. Meet her for lunch and give her your gift. Whatever you decide, make sure you focus on Mom today.
 
 
Make contact.
If you live across the country or overseas, and can't celebrate with Mom, be sure to send a sweet card and give her a phone call. Perhaps include a gift certificate with the card, or send a small gift. You could even order flowers from one of the many websites that offer those services. But overall, a phone call is a must. Your voice is a wonderful gift to a mother whose baby is far away.
