All About Mother's Day

May 02, 2016

Once a year, moms everywhere get a chance to kick back, relax and think about themselves for a change - but this hasn't always been the case. So put the "yo mamma" jokes on hold and find out more about your mother's big day. This year Mother's Day is May 8th, 2016!

Ancient History

The earliest Mother's Day celebration can be traced back to the ancient Greeks who honored Rhea, the Mother of the Gods during the spring. Years later, during the 1600s, England had a day called Mothering Sunday, honoring moms in England. At that time, lots of England's poor were servants for the wealthy. Most of these jobs were far away from their homes so servants lived in their employer's houses. On Mothering Sunday, servants had the day off and usually returned home to spend the day with their mom. Most of the time they would bring a mothering cake with them.

Celebrating in America

In the US, Mother's Day was first championed by Julia Ward Howe in 1872. Every year she would have Mother's Day meetings in Boston, Massachusetts. Her meetings were about peace and remembering all the sons and daughters lost at war. In 1907, a lady named Anna Jarvis from Philadelphia started a campaign for a national Mother's Day. She pushed her church to celebrate the holiday on the anniversary of her mother's death, the second Sunday in May. By 1911, the holiday was celebrated in almost every state. In 1914, the president made Mother's Day a national holiday on the second Sunday of May.

What to Do

Let your mom know how much you love her this Mother's Day. Give her a card, do extra chores, give her flowers, get her something nice like a framed picture of the two of you, or even make her something nice. Don't forget to send your mom a Mother's Day greeting and spoil her on Mother's Day!

I don't support him at all but my concern is if he is removed then we have to deal with Mike Pence who could be a lot worse. His political ideals would have a bigger impact on the US if he took power rather than leaving it for trump to deal with. Becides if we're smart since trump does not have political expirence we can shy him away from the bad stuff if we make it convincing enough for him to change his mind

Today, several states had thousands of women joining together to fight against Trump. Celebrities like Madonna, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cirus showed up, some gave speeches, women shouted and raised their signs. Will Trump budge? What do you think? Should women be able to have abortion? Should Trump cut funds of women?

The only thing that the Steam version has that this one does not is access to the 'workshop,' in which you can easily share and play other people's games. Ah, cool! X3 I'll pass on your advice to my friend so someone may benefit from it, as I don't use the application anymore. Thanks ^-^
