Happy Mothers Day from Go Places Digital “Mothers Are like glue. Even when you can’t see them, they’re still holding the family together” Susan Gale
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY FROM GO PLACES DIGITAL
Mother’s Day is the special time of year when you get to celebrate your first best friend and the person you always turn to when you need advice. It is also a great time to show your love for all the other mother figures and women in your life.
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.”
Over time the Mothering Sunday tradition shifted into a more secular holiday, and children would present their mothers with flowers and other tokens of appreciation.
Mother’s Day this year comes at such a time when we go through surreal times however, don’t let this stop you from having a good time. Here are some of our ideas to keep your mum smiling
Take your mum shopping for a new dress, a pair of shoes, perfume or jewellery. Lots of international branded stores, as well as famous high-quality local brands, are available at shopping malls countrywide. Our recommendation is to get her best perfume and if you are not sure Fragrance Lounge has some ideas for you.
Catch a Movie Together
Find a movie that you both enjoy and forget about the rest of the world or go to the cinema and watch the latest blockbusters while spoiling mum with large caramel popcorn, hot dog, a large beverage and her favourite chocolate bar. Now doesn’t that sound like a plan?
