The History of Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is coming up on the second Sunday in May and this is the day when we thank our mothers for all of the hard work they have done for us.
On this special day Mother’s are lavished with presents, cards and attention from their families and loved ones and usually treated to flowers, chocolates, spa treatments, gifts and more.
Have you ever wondered where this tradition of honoring our mothers came from? You might be surprised to know that Mother’s Day has older origins than you might think.
Cheaper Alternatives to Big City Breaks in the USA
Many people who live in smaller towns or in the countryside love to spend their holidays in a major city. During a “city break” they can enjoy the cultural events, nightlife, fine dining, shopping and impressive architecture that only a decent sized city can provide.
However, the USA’s biggest and most famous city destinations, such as New York and LA are notorious for their astronomical prices. Although these huge mega-cities are very exciting to spend time in, they can also make a small travel budget disappear very quickly.
The good news is that there are many other alternative city break destinations which will offer plenty of culture, shopping, food and nightlife for a much cheaper price.
In these cities you will find better hotel rates, lower prices of gas, and more affordable food so that you can enjoy the excitement of the city for less.

Branching Out – How to Celebrate Arbor Day
Trees are amazing living things.
They can live for hundreds of years, they can grow under all kinds of extreme conditions and they quietly cleanse CO2 from our atmosphere and provide us with oxygen.
They sway in the breeze, freeze in the winter and offer us welcome shade on a hot summer’s day. Trees give us everything from a perch for our childhood clubhouse to the wood in our pencils to the heat in our fireplace.
We should celebrate trees every day of the year, but the official holiday to honor these leafy wonders is Arbor Day.
The name Arbor Day comes from the Latin word “arbor” which means tree.
This holiday is dedicated to the planting and care of trees and it originated in Nebraska in 1872.
The holiday is observed in the springtime and the date changes according to the suitable planting conditions. In 2012, Arbor Day will be held on April 27th.
Here are a few ideas of what you can do on Arbor Day:
