Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate our moms and tell them how much they are loved. While the COVID-19 pandemic has put a temporary hold on family gatherings, we have ideas on how to make Mom feel special – even with physical distancing rules in place.
Mother’s Day started in the United States in 1908. And well before that, in the days of ancient Greeks and Romans, people held celebrations of motherhood and moms in honour of revered goddesses. Later, Christians in Europe would hold a festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” Over time, it became a secular tradition, and eventually became synonymous with what we now call Mother’s Day.
This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 10 in Canada. Try these thoughtful, inexpensive ideas for making mom feel extra-special this year, while still protecting her during the pandemic.
