Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It will be celebrated next Sunday, May 11th. I would like to clarify that not all countries celebrate Mother’s Day on this date.
Mothers Day is celebrated in several country across the globe though the month and date on which Mother’s Day is celebrated in different countries varies. Most countries celebrate Mothers Day on second Sunday in the Month of May.
This Mother’s Day date was declared by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914 when he signed a Joint Resolution designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. This U.S. tradition of celebrating Mothers Day and paying tribute to mothers spread across several countries over the years and these countries too adopted second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day.
If you have been looking for a symbolic gift for your mother and can’t find it, maybe this is just what you have been looking for and didn’t know it. It’s a digital moisture sensor which will tell your mother when her plants need water.
Trident Design’s new gadget, the Thirsty Light, is a simple moisture sensing device that you simply stick in a flowerpot and otherwise ignore. When things get dry, an LED flashes, and it’s bright enough that you can see it even if you’re passing by casually. When they really need water, the LED blinks faster.
At $9.95 per unit, Thirsty Lights makes for a nice, inexpensive gift; any plant lover can easily make the case for a three-pack to rotate around the plants in and around the house.
Please don’t forget; tie a string around your finger to remind you that next Sunday is Mother’s Day. Good Day!
