Mothering Sunday 26th of March 2017

Mothering Sunday 26th of March 2017

Mother's Day, or Mothering Sunday, is now a day to honor mothers and other mother figures, such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers-in-law.

Mothering Sunday was originally a time when people returned to the church, in which they were baptised or where they attended services when they were children. In time, it became customary for young people who were working as servants in large houses, to be given a holiday on Mothering Sunday. They could use this day to visit their own mother and often took a gift of food or hand-me-down clothing from their employers to her. In turn, this moved towards the modern holiday, on which people still visit and take gifts to their mothers.
Traditionally, people observed a fast during Lent. Lent is the period from Ash Wednesday until Good Friday. During the Lent fast, people did not eat from sweet, rich foods or meat. However, the fast was lifted slightly on Mothering Sunday and many people prepared a Simnel cake to eat with their family on this day. One legend says that the cake was named after Lambert Simnel who worked in the kitchens of Henry VII of England sometime around the year 1500.

ALL ABOUT PEARLS

ALL ABOUT PEARLS

   The pearl is loved throughout the world for its beauty, delicacy and elegance.

One of the world's favourite and most precious gemstones. The beautiful pearl was first thought to be created by the teardrops of a mermaid, a dewdrop from the moon or a gift to dedicate to the goddess of love.

Many thousands of years ago, long before written history, human beings probably discovered the first pearl while searching the seashore for food. Countless references to the pearl can be found in the religions and mythology of cultures from the earliest times. The ancient Egyptians prized pearls so much they were buried with them. Cleopatra reportedly dissolved a single pearl in a glass of wine and drank it, simply to win a wager with Mark Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire nation in just one meal.

With the introduction of the cultured pearl from Japan in the 1920s, the pearl has achieved broader luxury and fashionable appeal. The pearl still has an important symbolic status with many new brides will choosing to wear an elegant piece of pearl jewellery on they're wedding day.

It will take years for the mollusc to slowly deposit concentric layers of an organic material called nacre to form a natural pearl.
Techniques for culturing pearls in oysters and mussels have been developed in the last hundred years to replicate this natural process.
