Mother's Day is a time of commemoration and celebration for Mom. It is a time of breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled "I Love You"s.
The earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods. During the 1600's, England celebrated a day called "Mothering Sunday". Celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter), "Mothering Sunday" honored the mothers of England.
During this time many of the England's poor worked as servants for the wealthy. As most jobs were located far from their homes, the servants would live at the houses of their employers. On Mothering Sunday the servants would have the day off and were encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers. A special cake, called the mothering cake, was often brought along to provide a festive touch.
As Christianity spread throughout Europe the celebration changed to honor the "Mother Church" - the spiritual power that gave them life and protected them from harm. Over time the church festival blended with the Mothering Sunday celebration . People began honoring their mothers as well as the church.
In the United States Mother's Day was first suggested in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe (who wrote the words to the Battle hymn of the Republic) as a day dedicated to peace. Ms. Howe would hold organized Mother's Day meetings in Boston, Mass ever year.
In 1907 Ana Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to establish a national Mother's Day. Ms. Jarvis persuaded her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate Mother's Day on the second anniversary of her mother's death, the 2nd Sunday of May. By the next year Mother's Day was also celebrated in Philadelphia.
Ms. Jarvis and her supporters began to write to ministers, businessman, and politicians in their quest to establish a national Mother's Day. It was successful as by 1911 Mother's Day was celebrated in almost every state. President Woodrow Wilson, in 1914, made the official announcement proclaiming Mother's Day as a national holiday that was to be held each year on the 2nd Sunday of May.
While many countries of the world celebrate their own Mother's Day at different times throughout the year, there are some countries such as Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium which also celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May.
In China, we also celebrate this day on the second Sunday of May, we usually buy some carnations and presents for our mom, and gathering the whole family members to have dinner with mom, thank for her years upbringing.
|Mom,I love you and thank you!|

There is an important point to confirm of house ornamentation, that is to buy furniture first or confirm the style of decoration first ?
If buying furniture first, decor should fit furniture styles.
Decoration first, then buy furniture when there should be a framework that furniture styles and decor should match.
We advice to buy the furniture first, the decoration process seemingly reversed, it could become the main trend of the future renovation, because it allows a more complete home design is to help reduce a lot of unnecessary decoration trouble.
Most of people have no decoration experience, The designer for the customer's personal preferences, habits know little about, only their own understanding and experience to design, resulting in a lack of its own characteristics and style of decoration. Often a style decoration, furniture election is another style, the overall home discord. In election after designer selected furniture is not the same, you can take the first look at designer Italian furniture, and also told him the size, so the designer can learn specific furniture style you like, so during the design process the hard decoration, soft furnishings like furniture blends with the owners, a tailored style harmony renovation program. Designers also make some changes in the pattern of the room according to the size of the furniture, so as not to appear to cater to the design and style to spare some furniture situation.
In fact, to determine the style of furniture there is a principle, identify the main line in the big style of the premise. For example, like the pastoral style bedroom is first to choose princess iron beds or wooden bed; like modern style living room sofa determine the selection of leather or fabric sofa. After selecting the main line, and then the other to go along the main line, so that the selected style furniture is not a difficult thing.
Your personal characteristics depend on the details. After the furniture is determined, but do not get too excited, a little distance away from the stay. Because it is not a family inn, so some of the details which would need to add a personal flavor, such as curtains, lamps, tablecloths and the like. These seemingly are small, but it is also very bothered procurement.
