In the UK, Mother's Day (or "Mothering Sunday," as it is called) is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent. It is three weeks before Easter Sunday and usually falls in the second half of March or the beginning of April. In Norway, it's the second Sunday of February. In a large chunk of the Middle East, it's on March 21st. And a bit about Father's Day: In the US and UK, Father's Day is on the 3rd Sunday in June, while in Australia and New Zealand, it is on the first Sunday in September.

Where can you get a Mother's Day play?

User Avatar
I wrote this play and am very pleased with myself. It took me a few hours to complete, after thinking of a basic storyline. I hope you enjoy. Just copy and paste to pages, word or and other "notepad" writing material on your computer and you will have a wonderful Mothers day play. 9 characters, and if you think necessary then you may need to use a stage director and director! CAST: Older Child 1,2,3&4(OC 1,2,3&4) Page 1 Younger Child 1,2&3(YC 1,2&3) Mother, Dog(Rover) Starts out with mother holding baby and toddler pulling on sleeve. Older children 1 & 3 enter. OC 1: Mother, we got the water from the well. Mother: Oh thank you children, I appreciate it much. OC 3: Your welcome, Mum. Young children 1,2 &3 come running in with dog. YC 2: Mumsy the doggy got lose! YC 3: Mommy, we did try to catch it! YC 1: But he was just to quick! Mom: It's okay! I will catch him later, but thanks for trying! SCENE 2 Mom slowly looking for dog, talking to her self. Mother: Oh how I love my children! So great and so mischievous! (laughs softly) My, they are wonderful. Sometimes they can be naughty, yes, but they are so sweet. It's almost as if impressing me is natural, though they do not know it. Well, I have got to hurry home and cook up some stew for the kids tonight! Come along Rover. (mother and dog enter stage and begin stirring when OC 1 and OC 4 enter stage carrying a platter of treats) OC 2: Look Mother! We made dessert! OC 1: Yes Mum, when you were chasing Rover we came in and used your recipe to make cookies! Mother: That's fantastic children! Thank you. Will you please tell everyone to come in for dinner chores? OC 1&2: Yes Mama! Mother: (Starts humming, Rover follows her around as she does housework.) (Go and get other children, everyone comes back on stage with a mat and bowl and spoon, YC 1,2, and 3 set table while OC 1 and 2 help mother dish out food, OC 3&4 get water from well) OC 3:(walking to well) Do you think Ma loves us? OC 4: Why yes! Of course she does! She shows her love everyday! Page 2 OC 3: How? She says I love you at night I suppose. OC 4: That and cooks, cleans, prepares, washes and works, all just to keep us together as a family. She loves us very much. OC 4: I guess your right! We better hurry! Supper's getting cold! (Everyone sits down for dinner, family conversation) YC 1: Mama, how much do you love us? Mother: Down to the bottom of the ocean and to the top of the sky. YC 2: Mumsies, do you love us more than God? Mother: Honey, God loves us all the most, but I love you almost as much. YC 3: Mommy, am I your favorite child? Mother: Now there! Don't you know that I don't pick favorites, you are all my favorite! OC 1: Mother, do you think that Daddy is in heaven? What if he is still you know, living? Mother: Golly! Honey, we buried you father! He is not still living. (Looks sad, whimpers softly) But I believe that he is living in heaven with God. OC 3: Mama, may I be excused? OC 2: No! Wait! I will be right back! (gets dessert) Mother: Thank you dear. OC 4: MMMM! I love cookies! Mum, can we eat them now? Mother: Go ahead children! Remember to bust you place. (children eat fast and bust place, get blankets for bed) SCENE 3 (everyone laying down blankets, Mother helping younger children) OC 3&4: (not in bed yet, they get to stay up later) (Mother talking to them all sitting on stools) OC 3: Mama, did you know I love you so much! More than you can imagine? Mother: I love you back too. Life is tough without your father, but there isn't a second I don't love you children. OC 4: Mum, what would a mother do for child? Mother: A mother sacrifices herself for her daughter or son. Did you know that? OC 3: What if she were to die? Mother: She would do it anyways. You can't replace a mother, but you can have magnificent female family and friends. OC 4: Mum, when life gave you lemons, did you make lemonade? Mother: Indeed I tried to, but it's tough and that's what I am here for, to help you through the rough spots of life. Now, I think it's bedtime for you 2...off you go! OC 3: Yes Mama, I love you! (falls asleep, next morning everyone wakes up, stands up, lines up horizontally and bows saying "I love you MOMMY!" Credits: This proformance was written by 12 year old Katie, who loves to act direct and film. I hope you enjoy this play!
Asked in Jehovah's Witnesses, Mother's Day, Father's Day

Do Jehovah's Witnesses celebrate Mother's Day or Father's Day?

User Avatar
No, Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate Mother's Day or Father's Day. They only celebrate the Lord's Evening Meal. Answer 2: The Encyclopædia Britannica says: "A festival derived from the custom of mother worship in ancient Greece. Formal mother worship, with ceremonies to Cybele, or Rhea, the Great Mother of the Gods, were performed on the Ides of March throughout Asia Minor."-(1959), Vol. 15, p. 849.

What is the best Mother's Day present?

User Avatar
A nice card, a bunch of flowers (whatever you can afford) The most precious gift of all is giving the full day of your attention to her. Go out for a nice lunch or special dinner and just have fun! Flowers Nice, relaxing day at home A homemade gift Cookies Shopping Respect Scented candles Gift certificate for a day at a spa I am going to cook all her favorite dishes for dinner on Mother's Day and I'm giving her a DIY custom-jewelry pearl necklace and matching earrings to match her new clothes she just bought. And my kids (5 & 7) are going to play her a piano piece each; they have been secretly practicing for a few months now. If you are gifted in crafts give a gift like pottery, painting or knitting. Go to your local gift store and get some custom-made gifts with her name on it. Write her a poem, sing her a song or take her for a short trip: fly out of town or go on a cruise. The bottom line is that a Mother's Day gift does not need to be expensive; a gift from your heart will do. Nine times out of ten, a thoughtful card will be enough to make her smile. Anything homemade is a relative winner: cards, gifts, anything you put together yourself will add a thoughtfulness to the gift that she will appreciate. If your mother is not partial to arts and crafts, there are plenty of other options. Save the jewelry for the husband/dad. If you do not know your mother's tastes that well and are not sure what she likes, ask her friends, coworkers, or significant other, as she has probably mentioned many things she is fond of over the course of many conversations with them. A note on material things: Mothers are not like fathers, so do not think of a gift your dad/father figure might like and get that version "in pink." That is a cop-out. Instead, watch your mother's every day behavior and see if there is anything she might find useful, like a shuffle if she likes to work out, a fancy ballpoint pen (name engraved optional) if she writes. If all else fails, most mothers love family, so a family photo album or scrapbook or anything to remind her of her family and the love and care she gets will be an automatic winner. And you can make the gift-giving part interesting as well: maybe send her on a treasure hunt around the house; or have her answer some trivia related to family members or herself. Try to discreetly discover something she'd like rather than something you'd like to buy her. Ignore advertisements. If you've lived with her your whole life, you might have somewhat of an idea of the things she likes. It doesn't have to cost a lot; chocolates or a good bottle of wine or a book by a favorite author might be good, or even a subscription to a magazine you know she reads sometimes. A DVD or CD that you know she'd enjoy is always okay. If you have little money, why not make a huge, colorful card with lots of sentimental and loving comments, complete with glitter? Kitchen appliances and cleaning implements are not recommended; neither are fluffy slippers unless she's indicated she'd really like a pair. She's probably dropping hints. Listen hard. Ask her friends, but be careful they're not recommending gifts they'd like. A night out at a good restaurant is always great, especially if you can manage to have flowers delivered to your table; this is the kind of personal attention everyone loves. Those ideas are quite good but bake a cake, take her out, buy her a giant glittery card and tulips. put your feet in her shoes. Get your Mom something she will like: DVD's; makeup; a bag of toiletries. Or treat her to: a night out with "the girls; a visit to a spa; a massage. Another idea is to bake her a cake. One word: LOVE Don't make her wash the dishes or do any chores, you shall do it for her. Just remember to get her something that fits with HER interests, not yours. A back rub.

Does virginity mean anything now-a-days?

User Avatar
Considering there's still death penalty if you are not a virgin on your wedding night in some cultures I would say so. Depends on the couple and I would say it's their business. In the old days it often meant something because people felt they had no choice - today they do.

Asked in Jehovah's Witnesses, Mother's Day, Father's Day

Why are Jehovah's Witnesses disfellowshipped for celebrating Mother's Day or Father's Day?

User Avatar
This is incorrect information. JW are not automatically disfellowshiped for celebrating Mother's Day, or Father's day or celebrating anything else. The only time someone is disfellowshiped is if they commit a serious wrong doing, and DO NOT REPENT. (1 Corinthians 5:9-13). If and when they do repent, they are welcome back into the congregation. Disfellowship is never taken lightly, and is always a last resort. Regarding celebrating holidays including mom/fathers day there are a number of reasons why JW do not celebrate any holidays. Some of the reasons are that most of the holidays today are based on pagan beliefs, and also the Bible counsels Christians to be no part of the world.
