Share your mother's love.


This Month @Storyteller share your Mother's love and honor her motherhood. Mother's are known to love and care for their child or take care of one, with no-relation, as their own. Give something nice or visit her and thank her being your mother.

"Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised." - Proverbs 31:25-30

Mother's Day's date varies by country in the West and English speaking world.

May 8 - United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and British North American Territories. (The United Kingdom and Ireland already celebrated on March 27.)


Also this May, Americans celebrate their fallen soldiers on Memorial Day (May 31). Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans


Most of the Western world celebrates May Day today, a traditional festival marking the first day of summer, and a current traditional spring holiday in many European cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the festivities. May Day ceremonies in the U.S. and Canada vary greatly from region to region.

On the 25th, Canadians celebrate Victoria Day, in honor of Queen Victoria's birthday.

North and South Carolinians celebrate Confederate Memorial Day on the 10th. 

On National Solitaire Day on May 22, let’s acknowledge the brilliance behind the game of solitaire and how it helped entertain us for years.

Remember the hours spent playing solitaire after it was launched on Microsoft Windows in 1990? 

...Then got fired from your office job for playing?

Yeah, we remember. πŸƒ



Facts about May:

May (in Latin, Maius) was named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May. Conversely, the Roman poet Ovid provides a second etymology, in which he says that the month of May is named for the maiores, Latin for "elders," and that the following month (June) is named for the iuniores, or "young people" (Fasti VI.88).

Mayapples blooming. Common name given due to the plant's tendency to bloom in the month of May.

Mayovka, in the context of the late Russian Empire, was a picnic in the countryside or in a park in the early days of May, hence the name. Eventually, "mayovka" (specifically, "proletarian mayovka") came to mean an illegal celebration of May 1 by revolutionary public, typically presented as an innocent picnic.


We hope you have a great month, cheers,
