Mother's Day Dinner_11.05.08

We celebrated Mother's Day with a dinner at Ace and Spade Restaurant, Subang Jaya. My brothers, Dr. Mahendraraj and Jayaraj, came over with their family to celebrate. It was a long wait for the food as the restaurant was crowded. After waiting for more than an hour, we threatened to cancel and walk out. Food was promptly served after a few minutes. Nevertheless, the dinner was enjoyable and the "butter prawns" were the favourite dish among the children.

After dinner, the mothers cut an 'American Chocolate' cake to celebrate the occasion.

Wishing all mothers, "A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY". It is said that since God cannot be everywhere, he created mothers.

Interesting facts about Mother’s Day

1. Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days throughout the world because of its different origins.

2. We are following the date celebrated in USA which falls on the second Sunday of the month of May. In 1907, Anna Jarvis started the crusade to found a memorial day for women. It was declared an national holiday in 1914, as a day for American citizens to show the flag in honor of those mothers whose sons had died in war.

3. In U.K. Mother’s Day, which is also known as Mothering Sunday, falls on the Sunday between March and April, three weeks before Easter Sunday. It is believed to have originated from the 16th century Christian practice of visiting one's mother church annually, which meant that most mothers would be reunited with their children on this day.

4. In most countries, Mother's Day is a new concept copied from western civilization. The days celebrated differ from February to December but majority of the countries celebrate on second Sunday in May.
