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. For example, check out our Guide to Mother’s Day Gifts, where we offer a trove of creative gift ideas for all kinds of moms — and all kinds of budgets. 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 one of our free e-cards.

Hoppy Easter!

Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to hop on over to our Easter celebration, Easter on the Net.

Our Easter celebration has everything you could possibly want to know about this pinnacle holiday in the Christian religion. From an overview of Easter and the holiday’s historical origins to an explanation of the 40-day Lenten Season, including the holidays of Palm Sunday and Good Friday.

Have you ever wondered how Easter is celebrated in the Holy Land? Or what traditions are practiced by the Russian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox communities? Speaking of which, do you know why there are two different dates for Easter — one celebrated by Western churches, the other by Eastern Orthodox churches?

Perhaps you think you know already all there is to know about Easter! Like where the custom of hunting for Easter eggs comes from. And why the bunny rabbit is a symbol of Easter. Or how the Easter lily became associated with this springtime holiday. And just why we eat so much chocolate and marshmallowy candy at Easter time. You can brush up on the answers to these questions and more in our newest trivia feature: Did You Know Easter?

Do you have young children at home? Help them get ready for the Easter holiday by sending an email to the Easter bunny (every child will receive a personalized message in return!) or by enjoying one of our age-appropriate Easter crafts and coloring pages. We also have tips for hosting the perfect Easter egg hunt, cooking up a mouth-watering Easter menu and organizing a round of Easter egg games. We even have step-by-step instructions for making your own Easter egg baskets.

Finally, don’t forget to wish your family and friends a Happy, Hoppy Easter by sending one of our free Easter e-cards.

This year, the moveable feast of Easter will be celebrated on Sunday, April 04, 2010. The Eastern Orthodox churches will also enjoy their Easter celebrations on Sunday, April 04. We look forward to sharing our celebrations with you and your family.

Happy Easter!
