May is an exciting month because it marks the beginning of many things: blooming flowers, beautiful weather and spring wardrobe to name a few. And while I love May for all the beauty it brings, there is one thing that May brings to an end—our favorite television series.

So you’ve made mom breakfast, bought her some flowers, but the day is still young. I usually find myself looking for something fun and different to celebrate, always coming up short; I decided to look around to see what cool ideas other people had (and asked my own mother).

The Meaning of Mother’s Day

As a little girl, my favorite place was my mother’s lap. As I went through adolescence, I was embarrassed to give her a kiss in front of my friends. As a teenager she was my arch-nemesis. Now, as an adult, she is one of my best friends. Though our relationship changed throughout the years, one thing remained constant—she is my mother and I love her.

Mother’s Day falls on May 8th this year. Some women have been enjoying this day for many years and it never gets old. But just like all of life’s firsts, one’s first Mother’s Day is particularly special. It becomes a day to celebrate the step into motherhood. Motherhood being a full time job, which comes with no employee handbook enclosed with a description of duties.

Which Came First: The Bunny or the Egg?

Easter is an exciting time of year. It is the holiday that ushers in new life and warm sunny weather, which will be a welcome reprieve for many of our readers in the Northern states. Winter’s cold grip is beginning to soften and the world is waking up from hibernation. With all the excitement of spring we tend to take much of the symbolism associated with this time of year at face value—but when we step back and examine the traditions of spring and Easter, things can look a little funky.

So we have everyone’s favorite bunny that goes house-to-house giving chocolate treats and little gifts to children around the world, a business model he borrowed from the North Pole’s most successful CEO, Santa Clause. Much like Christmas, children learn quickly that the quality of the goods in their Easter basket is directly proportionate to their behavior. The concept of being rewarded for good behavior is important for children to learn and the excitement of a candy buffet is incentive enough. As a child, I never stopped to think much about the physical symbols of this time of year—the surges of dopamine induced by the Cadbury company put my mind elsewhere.
