DID YOU KNOW?

There are many things we don’t know, but we are here to enlighten you on a few facts that we found to be interesting and that you may not have thought of before. What do you know about Mother's Day and Friday the 13th? Do you know what happened today in history? Well, keep reading to find out!

Mother’s Day

In 250 B.C. ancient Romans celebrated a spring festival called, Hilaria. This was dedicated to a mother goddess named, Cybele, on the Ides of March. Her followers would make offerings at the temple, hold parades, play games and also have masquerades. It lasted three days.


In the 1600's England, Mothering Sunday took place on the 4th Sunday of Lent. It began with a prayer service in honor of the Virgin Mary. Afterwards children would present their moms with flowers.


In 1870 a female activist, writer and poet by the name of Julia Ward (she wrote the "Battle Hymn of the Republic") suggested a day of peace and strongly advocated other women to stand up against the war. From this plea she was able to get Boston to recognize mothers on the second Sunday of June.


Anna Jarvis was also a woman that may have been behind our traditional Mother's Day celebration on the second Sunday of May. Anna never had any children, but wanted to carry out her own mother's wishes of having a day just for moms. Anna tirelessly campaigned and on May 8th, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson signed a Joint Resolution designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day.


How much money is spent on flowers for Mother’s Day?

a.10 million

b.1.9 billion

c.990 million

d. 5 billion

Friday the 13th


Watch out! Today is Friday the 13th, known by many as the unluckiest day of the year.


While many will laugh off the superstitious day, others will remain in bed paralyzed by fear and avoid daily tasks, conducting business or traveling. In the U.S., an estimated 17 to 21 million people suffer from a fear of Friday the 13th, according to a study by the North Carolina Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute.


The phobia, known as friggatriskaidekaphobia, is not uncommon. The word comes from Frigga, the name of the Norse goddess for whom Friday is named, and triskaidekaphobia, or fear of the number thirteen. It is also sometimes called paraskevidekatriaphobia, from the Greek Paraskevi for Friday.
