We believe the influence of mothers in society is huge; as a matter of fact we know this from the ancient matriarchal societies to women today who tend the familial and societal bonds. So it’s fitting we celebrate Mother’s Day, or Mothering Day as it’s known in some countries, to honour our mothers and motherhood.
Mother’s Day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in spring. And so for us in the northern hemisphere, Sunday 11 May is Mother’s Day.
In whatever way you are going to celebrate Mother’s Day this year – whether with your mother, mother-in-law or the women who influence you, make it special with a favourite meal, a cake, or scones and clotted cream.
Our readers in the Greater Toronto Area can visit our Afternoon Tea website for a special offer on 12 Classic scones, Clotted Cream and Preserves. And a very happy Mother’s Day to mothers everywhere.
