Hey Junk Mailers
As you know Mother’s Day is coming up and we thought we would help you prepare for Mom’s special day…
Many people think that Mother’s Day was a holiday which was invented by the Greeting Card companies. But did you know that This holiday actually dates back to the annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to Rhea, the mother of all deities, and to the offerings the ancient Romans made to their Great Mother of the Gods, Cybele. Christians celebrated this festival on the 4th Sunday in Lent in honour of Mary, mother of Christ. In England this was expanded to include all mothers and was called Mothering Sunday. Why is this relevant, you ask? Well Mother’s day is coming up on the 10th of May of course.
Your mother is a special person in your life. You cry on her shoulder when the latest love of your life has dumped you, or you didn’t get the job you were after. If it wasn’t for her you would’ve failed matric and never gotten a driver’s license. Now it’s your turn to say thank you.
Get your mother a gift to say thanx. Take her for a picnic or a movie. Here are some more ideas for gifts: Candles, flowers, diamonds, chocolates, a gift basket, gourmet gifts, perfume, jewellery or even a voucher for a small vacation or spa treatment. Just show her how much you love her.
Here are some favourite Mother’s Day quotes you can use in Mom’s greeting card:
“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” Abraham Lincoln
“There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it” Chinese Proverb
“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness” Honour de Balzac
