The holidays are upon us, and if you aren’t the travel bug in your friend group, you definitely know who it is, and chances are they also always give the best gifts. There can be a lot of pressure around gift giving during the holidays, but some of the best gifts are the unique concoctions from inside jokes that no one else but you and your friend or loved one understand.
I love Thanksgiving, maybe even more than Christmas because it’s a time when we reflect with our friends and loved ones on what is good and bountiful in our lives. Our house is one of chaos, gluttony, stories, games, but mostly laughter and love. Oh, and LOTS of football. I began wondering if the United States was the only country to celebrate Thanksgiving. After doing some digging, I discovered Thanksgiving is a holiday that is celebrated in places all around the world!
Across the world, Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the mothers in our lives. It’s a time to express gratitude and appreciation for a mother’s hard work in and outside of the family. We’re all prone to taking our mothers for granted and this day gives us a chance to show her how much she means to us! Mother’s Day has long been celebrated and can be dated back to the Greeks and Romans. In recent history, the Western view of Mother’s Day is associated with the way the United States celebrates – with cards, gifts and flowers. However, across the world, different countries celebrate on different days and have their own traditions.
