With Mother’s Day approaching, many might find themselves stuck – not knowing how to express their love and appreciation for their mothers on this very special day dedicated to them. Besides treating mom to her favourite lunch, dinner or high tea, arranging for a mother’s day flower delivery together with a heartfelt message will make mother’s day that little bit more special. We have put together a list of 50 best mother’s day messages.
As Mother’s Day approaches us once again this year, on the Second Sunday of May, do we ever stop to wonder: what is the ‘true’ meaning of celebrating Mother’s Day? How is it traditionally celebrated and how may we celebrate it in our own ways?
In the UK, the English celebrate Mothering Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent. Back in the 1700s, house servants were encouraged to return to their hometowns to spend time with their mothers— a custom that was inspired by an even earlier custom that involved people going back to the first church they had ever attended, or their “mothering” church. Today, still steeped in religion, many churches will give children daffodils for them to give to their mothers.
Meanwhile, in Ethiopia, daughters will prepare vegetables and cheese, while the sons prepare meat for the annual meal and celebration. This celebration is vibrant, and even includes singing, dancing, and story-telling!
Here in Singapore, the most popular method of spending Mother’s Day is to treat mum to a nice meal out, complete with delicious and decadent food in her favourite cuisine and often times gifts of flowers. For those who are not able to be with their mothers this year, there are always the florists who are able to send your message of love on your behalf. Mothers day Singapore delivery has become increasing popular especially during the pandemic, where large gatherings are not permitted.
Mother’s Day celebrations happen every year on the second Sunday of May in Singapore, and it is a day where we show appreciation for all that our mothers have done for us throughout the years.
Of course, some argue that this love should be expressed on a daily basis, and not just on one special day of the year when we would present our mothers with a Mother’s Day bouquet and call it a day. I’m not saying that they’re wrong, but Mother’s Day reminds the busy people to take time out for their families, and it is also a day where we can show our mum even more love than usual. What’s wrong with showing some grand gestures of love such as gifting pretty bunches of flowers for mothers, in which you wouldn’t usually think of doing on a normal day?
