Mothers Day

There is always a good reason for a throwing a party or giving a gift to someone. One day I really like is Mothers Day, although I think she should be remembered every day and not just once a year.

The history behind Mothers Day is interesting. The Egyptians celebrated the goddess Isis who was considered the mother of the pharaohs, so in a way you can say that celebrating Mothers Day started there.

As a crafter I think Mothers day is a perfect time to show her your love by giving her something you've made yourself. Here are some craft ideas to a "Love you Mom" scrap book or a hand made card.

Mothers Day is not celebrated the same way or even the same day of year in different parts of the world. In the USA, Canada, Turkey and Bangladesh among others it's celebrated on the second Sunday in May while in Sweden it's celebrated on the last Sunday in May and in Spain on the first Sunday in May..... In Panamá it's celebrated in December.

What are you planning to do to celebrate your mother this year?
