Celebrate Mother’s Day with Meaningful Moments at The Batch Yard

Did you know that Mother’s Day has origins from the Civil War? Originally started as a group for mothers of both Union and Confederate soldiers to promote reconciliation. The holiday was created to promote peace and unity. This year, let’s keep the original Mother’s Day spirit alive by ensuring your mom spends the day in peace. 

There are so many ways to make sure your Mom has a peaceful Mother’s Day. They all depend on your mother’s personality and what she likes. From a spa day or breakfast in bed or a hand-made card, you know her the best! 

One of the most peaceful and calm experiences for Mother’s Day would be a day at the spa. Many local spas even offer special Mother’s Day discounts! Find a local spot and plan a relaxing experience for the mom in your life. 

Mother’s Day can also be just as special, if not more, when homemade! Give your mother the most special day right at The Batch Yard! Make her breakfast in bed, make sure the chores are done, and craft handmade cards to make her feel like a queen. 

Keep in mind that this holiday isn’t only for your own mother. You can celebrate Mother’s Day for your grandmother, aunt, children’s mom, or whoever is the maternal figure in your life. The Batch Yard is sure she will appreciate the celebration!

Everett, MA Celebrates Women’s History Month with The Batch Yard

Women’s History Month is here! Officially beginning in 1995, every March is an opportunity to celebrate women’s history, excellence, and achievements. The month was created to amplify the voices of women, celebrate the many contributions women have made to the United States, and recognize specific achievements made throughout history. From the first female self-made millionaire, C.J. Walker, to the first female Vice President, Kamala Harris- this is time to learn, recognize, and honor the history of incredible women. 

In 2024, the theme for Women’s History Month this year is “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.” This theme is specifically designed to recognize women in the United States who fight for a positive future through eliminating bias and discrimination from our society. This year, we are especially honoring women who have taken the lead to show the importance of change. 

The Batch Yard encourages you to take the time to reflect and celebrate the amazing women through history and within your personal life. Additionally, take the time to recognize the gender inequalities that still exist today. Use this time to work toward a more equitable future. Through the process of equity, we can reach equality. Appreciate and celebrate the women in your life not only this month but every month.
