It’s the month of May already and the world is heading to celebrate the earths most respected and in certain grim circumstances the most neglected creature: Mother. Different countries celebrate it on different dates but mostly do it in the month of May. Sri Lanka too celebrates Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May. Here, ventures like Kaymu will celebrate this precious day with you. In case you’re wondering or, are not completely sure how to make the best out of this day, following are some of the suggestions that will make your day memorable throughout your life.
The Concept of Mother’s Day
Unlike other common days like Labor Day, Cancer Day etc. which have a scripted way of celebrations, Mother’s Day does not necessarily require you to act a certain way. You need to have a basic understanding of the philosophy behind this day. Mothers don’t only have to go through the painful parenting role but as a gender have to perform tasks that nobody dares to take responsibility for. Almost all the gender roles conflate into this one being and to appreciate this diversity, this day is commemorated.
How to Celebrate This Day
The best way to celebrate this day is spend the time with your mother. Now, while you’re with her, here are some of the tasks you should perform to appease her.
Help her out with her house chores. Despite getting tired, you’ll never see your mom resigned regarding the house work, because it is embedded into her mind that no one else will do so. Break that barrier and work your day out helping her. This is of course the least possible way to reciprocate.
A bouquet of flowers can be the ultimate thing to gift your mother that day. Not only metaphorically but in a way literally, the sweetness of mothers have some resemblance to the gardens blossoming with flowers. A bouquet studded with fresh flowers and roses will freshen her day. You can order flowers online and get it delivered to your mother’s place. In case you’re out of town or country and can’t be with her, even then this bouquet of flowers will work perfectly.
Arrange a dinner for the family. Family get together is always a wonderful idea. See it through the parent’s point of view and you’ll realize how difficult for them is to see their children scattered around and not together. So, arrange a lavish, if not possible than a simple one for your family and make a toast to your mother’s efforts and sacrifices.
Be charitable at this occasion. It is at these occasions that one understands the sacrifices of the marginalized people. So, give it to others, who don’t have their plates full and make them feel like they’re one of us.
