In April, traditionally a rainy period, gives way to May, when flowers will bloom because of the water provided to them by the April rains. (We also like it for green grass.) This proverb actually came from “March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers” dating back to 1886, but there is actually a poem composed by Thomas Tusser in the mid-1500s where he wrote “Sweet April Showers, Do spring May flowers.”
The start of May also means Mother’s Day. The American holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908 through campaigning efforts by Anna Jarvis, and due to these efforts in 1914 Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation creating Mother’s Day, the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.
To honor our mothers, all mothers will play free on Mother’s Day with another paid guest on Sunday, May 10th. We want to give a special Thank You to ALL the wonderful mothers of our family and yours… Happy Mother’s Day!
