Mothers Day in the Forest of Dean Lodges
Celebrate Mothers Day in Forest of Dean lodges
Mothers Day in the UK falls on Sunday March 11th
We all celebrate the day but do we know anything about it? Mothers Day and its traditions stretch back to 1908. A simple of Google will give you the details, should you be interested to know the history of Mother’s Day. I “borrowed” this, just in case.
Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family. As well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world. The most commonly in the months of March or May.
I took a look at the main Wikipedia article on Mothers Day and I was amazed at how little I knew about it. I thought this was some long held pagan holiday but, as usual, I was wrong.
We have a lady called Anna Jarvis to thank for Mother’s Day, she held a memorial to her mother in St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. This is the very same place you will find the International Mother’s Day Shrine.
That’s the history lesson over with. But it is nice to know these facts. After all; one never knows when one will be asked a Mother’s Day related question in a pub quiz, does one?
Mothers Day Celebrations Forest of Dean
Now, the lovely people at Forest of Dean Lodges, which are in Coleford, Gloucestershire, they have asked me to tell all who will listen that Mother’s Day in the Forest of Dean is a superb way to treat mum.
Not only is it a beautiful place for a holiday but the Forest of Dean Lodges also have mini-breaks, health and fitness breaks. There are couples breaks and a range of other long term and short term breaks and stays.
While your staying in one of these Forest of Dean lodges or cottages, you can also pop down to the Designed for Beauty Salon and treat your mother to a makeover or some other great beauty treatments they have available.
Imagine your mum’s face when you she pulls up to a Forest Retreat that also offers Spa and Beauty treatments?
There is a special Mother’s Day package that cost a miserable £37.50 consisting of a Hot Tub, Hydrating Hands and Fabulous Feet.
That beats the hell out of a bunch of flowers and costs about the same.
Treat your mum like a queen this Mother’s Day, take her to the Royal Forest of Dean.
