Happy Mother’s Day!

Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to join our celebration of motherhood, Mother’s Day on the Net. Come learn about the history of Mother’s Day in America, and then discover how moms around the world are celebrated. For example, did you know that British mums were honored a few weeks ago during Mothering Sunday?

Speaking of “did you know?”, be sure to check out our fun-filled article on the facts, figures and folklore of motherhood and Mother’s Day. At Holidays on the Net, you can also discover the special way in which Americans pay tribute to bereaved military moms (hint: it’s during the September holiday of Gold Star Mother’s Day)

If you want to make Mother’s Day an extra-special celebration of your one-of-a-kind mom, we have plenty of resources for you. If homemade gifts are more your style, don’t miss our step-by-step instructions to Mother’s Day crafts. Simpler yet, help your children create personalized homemade Mother’s Day cards by using one of our mom-themed coloring pictures.

Or, how about making mom the best treat of all?! Breakfast in bed. (And don’t forget the clean-up! Nothing says, “I appreciate you” like a sparkling sink!) If you no longer live at home, you can still drop off a basket of mouthwatering muffins at her front door!

If you find yourself at a loss for words about dear-old Mom this Mother’s Day, Holidays on the Net can help. Read the inspirational proclamations of past U.S. presidents, who annually share their thoughts on the pivotal role that moms play in raising up our nation. Or simply let Holidays on the Net find the words for you, by sending your loved one a Mother’s Day Poem/Holiday Wish or one of our free e-cards.

Mother’s Day 2011 in the US will be celebrated on Sunday May 08th. We can’t wait to share this special occasion with all of you, so be sure to stop by!

Happy Holidays,

Come discover the history of Mardi Gras, which is also known as Fat Tuesday (including how a cold February Tuesday got it’s “fat” nickname.) Delight in the magical lure of a Mardi Gras parade, layered with traditions of beads, doubloons and trinkets. If you are hosting a Mardi Gras party, you can learn how to bake a traditional King Cake or even make your very own parade float!

Young children are sure to enjoy our Mardi Gras craft projects, such as making your own festival masks. Plus we have tons of free coloring pages for filling a rainy afternoon. Don’t forget to flex your trivia muscle with our fun Did You Know feature.

Did you know that King Cakes are a traditional Mardi Gras food?

An oval cake honoring the three kings is decorated in purple, green and gold colors, representing justice, faith and power, respectively. A small plastic baby, symbolizing the Baby Jesus, is baked into each cake. Whoever gets the piece with the baby not only will have good luck that year, but will also be responsible for bringing the King Cake to next year’s party!

Celebrated throughout the Gulf Coast, Mardi Gras is practically synonymous with New Orleans. But you don’t have to live in Creole Country to enjoy a good party.
