Mother’s Day is this weekend! Well, in the UK. We certainly did not want to send you into a panic that you had forgotten the most successfully performing commercial holiday in the US. But you may well wonder, why are the Brits jumping in the gun? Mother’s Day has its origins in Mothering Sunday, a Christian holiday that falls on the 4th Sunday in Lent. Secularly it became, over time, an occasion for honoring mothers and giving them presents. And in Britain and Ireland, it is still celebrated on that date, which is 10th March this year.
We Americans, of course, have to go against the grain. West Virginian Anna Jarvis successfully campaigned for a national holiday honoring the contributions of mothers, particularly to health and sanitation reforms of the early 20th century, which was confirmed with the first official US Mother’s Day being celebrated in 1914.
While restaurant chairs may not be your idea of a mother’s day gift, you can take some inspiration from Anna Jarvis and go against the grain with one of our excellent aluminum chairs, like this playful aluminum and resin arm chair. It’s a great choice for anyone who wants to combine elegance with durability, and add more than a dash of distinction to their seating area.
