Did you know that Mother’s Day is an American invention, first celebrated back in 1908? Today it is an internationally recognised holiday celebrated by millions all over the world.
Apparently in some countries it is potentially offensive to one’s mother not to mark Mother’s Day, whilst in other countries, it is a little-known festival possibly celebrated by immigrants only.
Here in Australia, the thought of giving gifts to mothers on Mother’s Day was started by Mrs Janet Heyden of Sydney, back in 1924 as a charitable gesture that now has become the norm.
The Chrysanthemum flower is the typical flower of choice for Mother’s Day, as the flower is naturally in season during May, and as it ends in ‘mum’, it seems appropriate don’t you think!
However, if you prefer a gift that will last longer than the vase of flowers, consider one of our beautiful floral scented candles.
