Mother’s Day

In many countries in the world second Sunday of May is a very special holiday, called Mother’s day. Of course, logically, Mother’s around the world should be honored every day, but since we have an occasion to give presents and share love and joy, why not?

In the Catholic Church, the holiday is strongly associated with reverencing the Virgin Mary.

In Hindu tradition it is called “Mata Tirtha Aunshi” or “Mother Pilgrimage fortnight”, and it is celebrated in countries with Hindu population, especially in Nepal. It is celebrated on the new moon day in the month of Baisakh i.e. April/May. This holiday is based in Hindu religion and it pre-dates the creation of the Western-inspired holiday by at least a few centuries.

 

Islamic scholars have published fatwas against dedicating a single day to honor mothers, which detracts from honoring them year round as ordered by the Quran.

Well, can’t disagree with some statements. But still, let’s talk about gifts on Mother’s Day; lovely bouquets of spring flowers, perfume, hand-made card, free massages, free dinner at fancy places.

Smokers-new minority with violated rights

No smoking sign

As an occasional smoker myself, I don’t mind all these new laws, about prohibited public smoking.

Everyone knows smoking is bad, smoking is harmful, smoking is dangerously sticky habit, and in many countries the most vulnerable and exposed group to this habit are children.  We don’t want that, that is why in some countries soon cigarettes will be selling from under the counter, and the pack will be soon plain with no colors, so not to attract unnecessary attention.  No smoking in the pubs, no smoking in the gardens, sometimes no smoking in you very own car. All of this is reasonable, but.

But recently, I started feeling that smokers in most of developed countries became social culls, due to all restrictions.  What if person has this habit for along time, what to do? We know it is addiction to fight, and it is not an easy path. So why do humiliate?

Well, anyway it’s just my thoughts. Despite restrictions, smokers do have small joys, like for example electronic cigarettes or beautiful lighters or even pocket ashtrays. Mont Bleu has a huge assortment of smoking accessories decorated with Swarovski crystals, and gladly presents you new designs of pocket ashtrays, available in different colors.
