Happy Mother’s Day 2017!

 

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.

 

Background
Early Mother’s Day celebrations can be dated back to the spring celebrations to honor Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, in ancient Greek civilization, according to some sources. Later, Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom was traditionally a day for people to visit the church where they were baptized, although it now also celebrates motherhood in modern times.

Symbol
Early celebrations of Mother’s Day originated from Canada’s neighboring country, the United States. Carnations are a popular Mother’s Day symbol in both Canada and the United States. Some people may choose to wear a carnation as a brooch on Mother’s Day. However, other flowers are also given to mothers or mother figures to symbolize one’s love and appreciation for them.

What do people do on Mother’s day?
Many people remember their mothers and mother figures on Mother’s Day.
Some people give cards, flowers, or chocolates, and/or make handmade items or special meals on Mother’s Day. Others take their mothers or mother figures to the movies, a restaurant, café, or a day in a park. Some mothers and mother figures also receive special gifts such as jewelry, clothing, accessories, and gift vouchers for services or products.

Mother’s Day falls on different days depending on the countries where it is celebrated. It is held on the second Sunday of May in many countries, such as Australia, Canada and the United States. It is held exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday in the United Kingdom. Sundays are usually non-school and non-working days in these countries.

In Concert May 13 – Christine Graves and Kate Weekes

 

A superb night of original music from two established songwriters. Both have new stories and sweet voices to share in this beautiful venue. One night only!

Christine Graves and Kate Weekes are singer-songwriters with roots in the Perth area. Kate is originally from Smiths Falls and has spent the past decade living in the Yukon Territory. For the winter of 2017, Kate’s adventures took her to Norway where she was working as a wilderness guide with a team of 52 sled dogs. Christine lived in Balderson for 15 years, often writing songs that reflected the Lanark landscape and life. She now resides in Ottawa.

The two songwriters carry an affinity for rural Canada and have teamed up to share an evening of song in concert. They will be accompanied by James Stephens on fiddle and Franc van Oort on guitars.
