Holiday Invite: Independence Day on the Net

Happy Independence Day!

Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to share in our online celebration of America’s birthday. On July 4, 1776, nine of the twelve colonies attending the Continental Congress voted to approve the Declaration of Independence — and a nation was born!

Help your children get into the spirit of our nation by enjoying one of our craft projects. Or brush up on your knowledge of American history, with our articles on the Pledge of Allegiance, the American flag and the Declaration of Independence. Also be sure to enjoy a little red, white and blue trivia with our Did You Know? Facts and Figures about July 4th.

Are you planning to host or attend a 4th of July cookout (would it be July 4th if you didn’t?!) Be sure to peruse all our great grill recipes — plus our patriotic pastries, like Mom’s Favorite Apple Pie.

Perhaps you are planning a trip to our nation’s capital for Independence Day? Be sure to visit one of the national monuments and memorials — there is no better way to celebrate the country’s history and heroism. Or how about visiting one of America’s 400 national parks? They are the perfect place to get in touch with the beauty and bounty of the United States.

Of course, nothing says 4th of July like an awesome fireworks display. And if you don’t mind doing a little holiday driving, you might be able to catch one of the nation’s eight best Independence Day pyrotechnic shows.

On Monday, July 4th, 2011, America will be celebrating its 235th birthday. We look forward to sharing with you one of the biggest parties yet!

You might even get some inspiration on original ways to celebrate your dad by reading what the President (AKA Dad-in-Chief) has to say about fathers across America.

Or, if you are looking for ways to get your children involved in celebrating Father’s Day, you will definitely want to check out our collection of dad-inspired crafts and coloring pages. Plus, we have a flush list of gift suggestions, with options to fit any budget.

For a real Father’s Day treat, try winning the way to his heart with one of our super special daddy-friendly recipes. We have everything from sweet treats for breakfast to hero sandwiches for lunch to BBQ with all the fixins’ for dinner.

Are you a fan of famous fathers? Whether it’s TV dads (everyone from Ward Cleaver to Tony Soprano) you like, or real-life celebrity dads you prefer (Brad Pitt, anyone?), we have you covered!

In America (and 53 other countries around the globe), Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June. In 2011, we will be toasting our dear dads on June 19st. We look forward to seeing you in the coming days as we gear up for a most special celebration of fatherhood!

Holiday Invite: Shavuot on the Net

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Shavuot on  the Net

Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday)!

Holidays on the Net invites you to join us for our celebration of the Jewish festival of Shavuot.

Shavuot is celebrated exactly seven weeks after the second day of Passover, which explains the name of the holiday — it literally means “weeks”. Commemorating the ancient harvest of the first fruits, Shavuot also has important religious significance for the Jewish people: The holidays marks the anniversary of G-d giving the Israelites the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai.

Join us at Shavuot on the Net to learn more about the unique religious customs and legends of Shavuot, including the tradition of eating dairy foods. Share the spirit of this early summertime holiday with your children, by making together Shavuot-themed crafts or cooking up a Shavuot feast in your kitchen.

This year, Shavuot will be celebrated @ sundown on Tuesday, June 07th.

We look forward to seeing you this Shavuot.

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,
