Happy Mother's Day...

Post by Irn Bru on Sun Mar 15, 2015 9:10 am

... to the Mum's around the world wherever you are, you are pure diamonds you are.

And it's a double for me because it's also my wife's birthday as well.

FGS! Sometimes you really come out with stuff that is so backward, bigotted and ignorant it's beyond belief:

The true origins of Mothering Sunday
Somewhere beneath the cards and bouquets of flowers lies an historical and Christian tradition that goes back centuries, says Christopher Howse.

Wolf. Less of the racist name calling pal. Mad

@Rising, thanks a lot for the info on mothers day. Smile That is a lot more interesting than the crap celebrations.

Personally I forget, every year, maybe even deliberately. No, I am not losing my marbles it is just these bulshite celebrations just do not interest me in the slightest. Sleep

All these "days" are just an excuse to get more money out of the public.

"Mothers Day" is the worst as it gets children to spend all their pocket money on rubbish with inflated prices!

The UK had Mothering Day for a long time, but that's a Christian celebration of the "Mothering Church." Nobody had Mother's Day until it was invented in the U.S. -- Australia, Canada and New Zealand adopted the same celebration date as it was in the U.S., while the UK folded it into Mothering Day and now the original intent of "Mothering Day" is largely forgotten.

Nicko, the founder of Mother's Day would agree with you -- after she saw it turned into another commercial holiday, she tried to have it banned. She thought it should be celebrated by hand-writing your mother a letter of appreciation Smile

Bee and I have a special affection for Greeks. Lol. A long, long distant cyber-battle, years ago. Sometimes a blister rises to the surface.

No offense Pantelopoulos.
