Preparing For Mother’s Day!

Have you planned yet?Mothers-Day-Bouquet

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 11. It is annually held on the second Sunday of May. In some countries it was changed to dates that were significant to the majority religion, or to historical dates. This day celebrates motherhood and it is a time to show your appreciation to mothers, and mother figures. Many people give gift, cards, flowers, candy, or other treats to their mother or mother figures such as: grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, and foster mothers.

A great way to start out Mother’s Day is to make breakfast or brunch, clean the house, watch a movie and maybe go out shopping.

Making a Mother’s Day brunch for your mother will be quite a surprise for her.

You can making any meal and/or snack for your mother on Mother’s Day. Most people would make brunch because, their mother will probably be catching up on her sleep (ZZZZZzzzzzzz). Brunch is the meal you eat late in the morning instead of breakfast and lunch. You can make anything from smoothies to Raspberry Mousse Pie.
