hari ni 1 april. sangat sinonim dengan April Fool kan? dan ramai yang tahu tak elok sambut sebab sejarah April Fool tu.
i pernah je kena April Fool dengan member-member dulu. last time was on 2007. i dikenakan ya, bukan i mengenakan. dusy dusy dusy~ masa first year di UTM. tak boleh diceritakan di sini atas sebab-sebab sensitiviti masyarakat.
valentine's day pun. banyak negatif dari positif.
then, pagi ni terbaca status dari seorang kawan di facebook, bertanya, macam mana pula dengan Mother's Day? tak sempat nak google sangat, just curi sikit dari wikipedia.
This day may have emerged from a custom of mother worship in ancient Greece, which kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of Greek gods. This festival was held around the Vernal Equinox around Asia Minor and eventually in Rome itself from the Ides of March (15 March) to 18 March.
The ancient Romans also had another holiday, Matronalia, that was dedicated to Juno, though mothers were usually given gifts on this day.
In Europe there were several long standing traditions where a specific Sunday was set aside to honor motherhood and mothers such as Mothering Sunday. Mothering Sunday celebrations are part of the liturgical calendar in several Christian denominations, including Anglicans, and in the Catholic calendar is marked as Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday in Lent to honour the Virgin Mary and your "mother" church (the main church of the area). Children and young people who were "in service" (servants in richer households) were given a day off on that date so they could visit their families (or, originally, return to their "mother church). The children would pick wild flowers along the way to place them in the church or to give them to their mothers as gifts.
err... so u guys, what do you think? *sorry tak sempat nak cari source yang reliable lagi*
