Mother's Day was officially entered into the U.S. calendar in 1914 as a holiday, with roots that trace back to ancient Greece and Rome. According to History
Ancient Greeks and Romans held festivals honoring Rhea and Cybele, two mothering goddesses. This celebration eventually shifted to the United Kingdom during the Lenten season when people would return to their "mother churches".
The current day celebration of Mother's Day varies within each family but typically involves creating a day to honor her through relaxation and gifting your mother with special things - a card, a beautiful homemade meal, perhaps a gift that speaks to her individuality or her favorite hobby. This year, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, May 13th. Are you ready to honor and celebrate your Mom?
Start with a homemade breakfast in bed after you let her sleep in. Kids will love to help in the kitchen by whipping up these Hey Girl Chocolate Muffins
from Genius Kitchen and Mom will love them because they're chocolate! The nonstick interior of the Ceramabake BC6000 12 Cup Muffin Pan
offers premium food release which means the baking and the clean up will be easy!
Track down the craft supplies and gather 'round the table to add a personal touch with a homemade card. She'll treasure the time and effort it took to create a homemade card. If you're looking for ideas on where to get started, check out these examples and DIY tips from Better Homes & Gardens

Take advantage of beautiful, seasonal weather and head outdoors. Get in touch with nature and give your Mom the opportunity rejuvenate, perhaps by walking or hiking through the park. She'll love using her Range Kleen Go Caddy™ to hold her favorite water bottle, cell phone, keys and other items. She'll simultaneously enjoy being hands-free and hydrated. Or she may enjoy lounging in a hammock with a good book. A packed picnic lunch featuring her favorite foods along with a soft blanket is a fun, relaxing way to enjoy a meal together.
We hope you'll find a special way to give back to your mother this Mother's Day.
Wishing all Mother's a Happy Mother's Day from everyone at Range Kleen.
