MAY "this month we celebrate..."

May Day

In Great Britain, the first day of May  is known as May Day. It is the time of year when warmer weather begins and flowers and trees start to blossom. It is said to be a time of love and romance. It is when people celebrate the coming of summer with lots of different customs that are expressions of joy and hope after a long winter. Traditional English May Day celebrations include Morris Dancing, crowning a May Queen and Dancing around a Maypole

Mother's Day

In the United States "Mother's Day 2012" is observed on the second Sunday of May (13th) and celebrates the important roles that mothers serve in society. Anna Jarvis of West Virginia started the holiday in 1908 to pay tribute to mothers, but it wasn't until 1914 that President Woodrow Wilson made the holiday official by signing it into law.

England  also has an equivalent holiday to Mother's Day called "Mothering Day" that is celebrated on the fourth Sunday during the month of Lent. this year it took place on the 18th of March.

MARCH "this month we celebrate..."

World Book Day was celebrated for the first time on April 23rd. The connection between
23rd April and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Spain as a way to honour Miguel de Cervantes who died on that day.

In 1995, UNESCO decided that the World Book and Copyright Day would be celebrated on this date because of the Catalonian festival and because the date is also the anniversary of the birth and death of William Shakespeare and the death of Miguel de Cervantes.

In the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, World Book Day is held annually on the first Thursday in March. It was decided to avoid the established international 23rd April date due to clashes with Easter school holidays, as well as the fact that it is also the National Saint's Day of England, St George's Day.
