Mother’s and Father’s Day Party
What is your host’s purpose in having a party? Surely not for you to enjoy yourself, but for them to enjoy themselves as well. Everyone loves a party, though we are all individuals. For example a mother and a father want nothing more then love from there children. Though its always considerate and adoring for the son or daughter to do something a little in return for there parents hard work. In my perspective mothers would savor any moment of gardening and fathers would relish over a football, basketball, baseball ect. game with their friends. Sometimes it’s the other way around mothers might want to sit down and rage over a football game and fathers possibly would rather read a book out in the garden and relax. You just need to gather up the facts and start from there.
If I were to throw a party or do something special for my mother I would start with a breakfast in bed. If there’s one thing my mom loves it is to be left alone in the mornings. So I will leave a note letting her know I love her and leave a gift card for a day out to the spa. I know she will love it because when she is stressed she complains about how it would be delightful if she had a day off out to the spa. Now to plan the party, I know where it will be, in the backyard where her garden is. My mom’s hobby is gardening. She says it’s relaxing and she’s always talking about how she wants her garden to be the capital of all gardens. I wouldn’t do much to decorate cause she loves flowers and there already set. I’d probably grab some balloons and place up a banner saying “HAAAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, BESTFRIEND !” I would want it to be at night, because my mom loves candles, so I would light up some candles. Like vanilla flavored or rosemary flavored candles, she fond’s over those flavors. To complete this “perfect” day I would play a few of the old family video’s of when my siblings and me were younger. It will end with bed time stories.
When I was first asked to give a talk on mothers, since it would be mother’s day. I started wondering how Mother’s Day came to be. I was surprised to discover that Mother’s Day has a history longer than Christianity! Ancients celebrated Isis (Mother of the Pharaohs), Rhea (Greek Mother of the Gods), and Cybele (The Great Mother). The worship of these ancient goddesses is similar to the reverence ...
Father’s day, now that’s a different story, I would say I am more like my father then my mother. My dad loves being out, being adventurous, always up to something new, playing sports, going out with friends and coming home for family laughs. My dad isn’t into parties, so for father’s day I would take him to a few places and come home for a get together with his buddies. Like I said, my dad has a passion for sports, he loves baseball and cricket. His favorite team for baseball are the METS. Me on the other hand, I love the YANKEES. His favorite cricket team, I’m not to sure, I would say Bangladesh. He also enjoys going to the beach and he loves eating, sandwiches to be specific. I wouldn’t get him a breakfast in bed, I would make a warm breakfast with pancakes and write “I love you Dad, happy father’s day old man!” with syrup on the pancakes. I would eat the breakfast with him and would just talk about live. Then I would wake my brother up and get both my dad and brother into the car and we would drive to the beach. I would make sure to have my baseball glove and a baseball. We would stop for some sandwiches at Subways. When we get to the beach we would go out for a swim and then play a game of catch. Then I would get a picnic ready, by that time my mom would be there with my sister and we would have a family lunch on the beach. I would make sure to stay out till the sun sets and we all would watch the sun go down. Then my dad will go and hang out with his buddies for a while. To complete the perfect fathers day, we would watch the old video’s of my dad teaching me and my brother how to play baseball and sleep on that.
