In March, April, and May countries across the world honor mothers with a day dedicated to giving thanks for all they do. Although festivals to highlight motherhood can be traced back as far as ancient Greek times, most countries have adopted the modern North American Mother’s Day celebrations by giving moms flower arrangements, gifts, dinner, and perhaps a break from the never-ending pile of laundry.
Speaking of never-ending laundry... we learned that the highest officially recorded number of children born to one mother is a whopping 69! She was a peasant woman who was the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev of Shuya, Russia. Between the years 1725 and 1765 she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets!
That was one woman in desperate need of a bouquet of flowers.
In our Kelowna flower shop, we have beautiful flower arrangements for Mother’s Day. You can also enter to win a flowers for mom by entering in our “Who’s Your Momma?” Contest on Facebook. Find your mother’s personality below and surprise her this May 13th with a special treat.
