Mothers Day Gifts

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

The modern Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days in many countries of the world, most commonly held in March, April, or May as a day to honour and celebrate mothers and motherhood.

Mothers Day in the UK and Ireland follows the old traditions of Mothering Sunday and is celebrated on the Fourth Sunday in Lent - a moveable feast that falls on different weeks during March or April - the earliest possible date being 1 March and the latest 4 April.

Typically, gifts are given by sons and daughters to their mum, although sometimes little presents are now also sent to other female family members.

The origins of Mothering Sunday are religious although these had become less well celebrated until an influx of American culture through their involvement in World War II restarted the concept. However, the US Mother’s Day is on a different day - second Sunday in May - and has different origins, being ‘created’ by a West Virginian woman, Anna Jarvis, in 1908 as a day to honour your own mother.

Teddy Bear Friends have a wide variety of Mothers Day gifts that will all be equally loved by mum - whether you spend £5 or £100.

Knut the Polar Bear Dies

Knut the Polar Bear Dies at Age 4

Knut, Berlin’s beloved polar bear, who rose to international fame as a cuddly cub hand-raised by zookeepers has died aged 4.

Bear keeper Heiner Kloes said, “It was a completely normal day. He was with the female bears before, who had just been shut away. Then, Knut strolled around the enclosure, went into the water, had a short spasm and died.”

After being rejected by his mother at birth in December 2006, Knut was raised by a Berlin zookeeper and only recently celebrated his 4th birthday at the zoo.

Feted by a host of celebrities and appearing on a 2007 Vanity Fair cover with Leonardo DiCaprio, Knutmania also spawned a film and plush polar bear toys that became a massive hit with the public.

Knut will be remembered fondly by all his fans.
