Mother's Day is just around the corner - get ready!
Mothers are havens, solid rocks in good and bad times, and always here for us kids (no matter the age) when we need them. That is why we celebrate them every year with a special holiday – Mother’s Day!
Mother's Day History
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele.
In North America, Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908. She aimed at - in her own words: To "revive the dormant filial love and gratitude we owe to those who gave us birth. (...) To make us better children by getting us closer to the hearts of our good mothers."
By 1911, many American states and Canadian provinces had begun celebrating Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May, which is this year on May 9th.
Mother's Day Gift Ideas
Very common gifts for Mother's Day are flowers or chocolates. So what a great idea would it be to add a new twist to your gift by complementing flowers or chocolates with a little Herrnhut Star, for example.
Especially the 13 cm /5 inch star is ideally suited to be arranged and decorated together with flowers or other little items in manifold colours. Also, show us pictures from your gift arrangements or decorations - we'd love to see them! :)
Another round of the Virtual Toronto Gift + Home Market is awaiting us in August. As we are seeing many improvements and openings concerning Covid-19 restrictions, large scale indoor events, however, cannot yet take place in Ontario. Therefore, we welcome another round of the Virtual Toronto Gift + Home Market in August. MyBrilliantStar will take part again with a virtual booth and full online service. The show will be LIVE from August 9-12, however our online booth will be accessible for retailers far beyond the live show, from August 9 – September 3.
Happy Canada Day! Today on Canada Day, you will see it proudly flying throughout the country. Maybe you’ve waved a paper hand flag on Canada Day, or worn it as a pin on your jacket. Maybe you’ve even sewn one on to your travel backpack! Regardless of where you see it, the National Flag of Canada stands out both at home and abroad as one of the most striking and recognizable symbols representing Canada.
