All over the world, Father’s Day is a celebration of our fathers. Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday in June . This year, Father’s Day 2019 falls on Sunday, June 16th.

The origin of Father’s Day began on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. Inspired by a Mother’s Day sermon, a young girl named Sonora Louise Smart decided that father’s deserved their special day, too. Her mother died in childbirth, leaving her father to raise six children on his own. Sonora had a deep respect and love for her father and believed fatherhood deserved to be recognized. (Wikipedia)

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Neck Ties: Neckties are crisp to the point. When it comes to shopping for neckties to present to your dad on this special day, navy-blue, wine-red and other bright colors are fantastic and classic options. Another fun idea is to get inexpensive, plain, solid colored ties and let the kids go to town on then with fabric paint!

Fishing Lures: Lures are essential fishing equipment and a great gift, especially if your dad is a fisherman.

Sports Equipment or Tickets: If your dad loves sports, surprise him with tickets to his favorite sports team! Another idea, if dad loves baseball, get him two tickets and put them in a basket with some snacks and a brand new baseball or glove!

National Donut Day 2019 – Where To Get Free Donuts

where to get free donuts 2019 national donut day

Don’t you just love donuts? It’s not just about the creamy taste, nice mouth feel, awesome recipes, and creative appeal; it has come a very long way! In celebration of the event, there will be many giveaways you don’t want to miss out on and guess what? They’re all sweet. You don’t have to fret about making your own. That thrill could be as easy as turning into the next block across your street to celebrate National Donut Day 2019.

The History of National Donut Day

As unofficial as it sounds, you’d think this event is something the whole world should be a part of not for its tasty nature alone, but for what it represents.

It was 1917 where a group of selfless volunteers was sent to provide basic baked goods and other services to troops engaged in the war in France. It was no easy feat though and two Salvation army volunteers introduced the now famous idea to serve doughnut. This act kept the troops coming back for more and has since been celebrated. Although it took some years to begin, the National Donut Day has to be in existence since 1938. Now on the first Friday of June in each year, we get to enjoy tasty treats and also celebrate the Salvation Army charity, not leaving the brave ladies (the ‘Donut ladies) out and we also remember the heroes who fought bravely. The donuts constantly gave the troops a feeling of home.

The event has since continued to serve charitable purposes starting with the funds raised for people during the Great Depression and the National Donut Day 2019 won’t be any different. If you haven’t been part of it before, you’ll have a chance on the 7th day of June this year. The Salvation Army continues to provide enough meals to those in need in moments of crisis.

Places Where You Could Get Free Donuts In 2018 As You Anticipate The Official List For National Donut Day 2019

Missed out on the freebies donuts over the years? Chances are that you didn’t know where to go. It’s a one-day event and you’d want to set your schedule right. If there’s anything better than a tasty donut, it’s a tasty donut you don’t pay for.

While you wait with eager taste buds, let’s take a look at some of the places that served free donuts (who knows, they might just be listed again this year!)…

Walmart: In 2018, Walmart offered a free glazed donut to each of its customers. There was no shortage of supplies too. It wouldn’t be farfetched to say they’ll also be part of the National Donut Day 2019 so you can expect to get served.

Papa John’s: Is there a better way to introduce a new dessert while serving up a free 10 piece orders on pizza Friday? Buying a pizza was the password to getting tasty donut holes.

Burger King: The day was enjoyable as BK served up flame-grilled donuts across 5 different cities. If that wasn’t enough, it came with a free mini donut slider on the side. Want to grab some already? June is around the corner!

Other places include Krispy Kreme, Edible, Lamar’s Donuts, Cumberland Farms and MORE.

Mother’s Day Inspiration

What is Mother’s Day?

Usually celebrated on the 2nd day of May (International Mother’s Day), Mother’s Day is an an avenue to pay rich tributes to someone who has, over the years, impacted our lives, someone whose love, care and affection knows no boundaries and that woman who engages in everything to ensure that the children are happy and joyous at all times.

Flowers are considered to be a customary gift for mothers. It is believed that flowers perfectly convey the special appreciation messages for the love, care and affection that a child has for their mother.

Mother’s Day Trivia

The earliest celebration of Mother’s dates back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the mother of all the gods. While Mother’s Day is celebrated all across the world, there are cultural variations in traditional celebration.

In Thailand, Mother’s Day usually occurs in August, specifically on the birthday of the current queen, Sirikit.

In Ethiopia, families will gather to sing songs, and organize a large feast as part of the activities of the multi-day celebration honoring the existence of motherhood.

In the United States of America, Mother’s Day is usually celebrated by presenting gifts and flowers to mothers and other women who fill that mother role. Mother’s Day has evolved into one of the largest and most significant holidays for consumer spending. Families also celebrate this day by giving the mother a day off from household activities such as cooking, house chores and many more.

Popular Mother’s Day Flowers and Their Meanings

Here is a list of recommended flowers to gift your mother in celebration of Mother’s Day:

Tulips: Tulips generally signify a ‘perfect love’ but their color tells you what type of love. For instance, purple is a color of royalty and red usually means romantic love. Pink represents affection and care while white is a symbol of apology, but also cheerfulness. There are also countless varieties of tulips – Parrot, French, Fringed, Lily-fringed and so forth. Irrespective of the colors you have chosen to gift your mom, tulips are the quintessential spring flowers capable of bringing joy and happiness to the recipient.

Roses: Roses are classic traditional flowers to gift on Mother’s Day. In this instance, perhaps shy away from red roses since red is a color typically associated with romance. Better to opt for pink, which symbolizes love, gratitude, and appreciation. White roses symbolize purity and brightness while cream-colored roses are great signify thoughtfulness.

Carnations: Carnations are the flowers that started it all on World Mother’s Day. Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother’s Day, sent more than 500 carnations flowers to every mother in the  West Virginia Congregation in commemoration of Mother’s Day in 1907. Pink carnations explicitly symbolize the love for one’s mother. White carnations represent pure, unparalleled love, and good luck.

Daisies: Daises are widely known to be a symbol of cheerfulness. If your mother is someone who radiates happiness, then Daisies are the perfect match for her. Daises also represent innocence, beauty, and purity.

More about me, the artist!

  • My name is Yvonne de Salle. In a past life I was an singer-actor but now I devote most of my time raising my family. I went to art scam school and then dropped out and then that art scam school went out of business. Coincidence? I think not! *haha*
  • My husband and I have two little girls, epic firecrackers. My eldest is the funniest kid I know and has the WILDEST imagination. My youngest has a set of vocal cords that, as a parent, drive me crazy. But as a vocalist, I’m super jealous. I don’t think the notes she can hit are even on the piano.
  • I’ve been watching/listening to Parks and Rec almost every single day since my first child was born. It’s just on all the time. Literally…the soundtrack to my life.
  • I love coffee. I drink it like it’s going out of style.
  • I love to cook. My mother-in-law gave me a cast iron pan for Christmas and it is the GREATEST THING EVER.
  • I miss singing so much. So much. One day I will return to it, but for now, I am content where I am.
  • Wanna know more? Visit my personal blog at www.singathomemom.com – though there’s not much there at the moment.
