The people who work at Spa Space are amazing. (Just because we’re biased, doesn’t mean it isn’t true.) They are the reason we have been named the best day spa in Chicago. Their mothers should be very proud of them.
Our team will be working hard in the coming weeks. Mother’s Day is always a busy time for us! We have clients calling because they want to give their mom a spa day – complete with ultra-relaxing Chicago massages and revitalizing facials – and they want to share it with them. Others want their mothers to have the fun of looking over all the delicious spa treatments on our full menu of services, so they opt for gift certificates.
We are honored when people ask us to help them let their moms know how much they care. Every time we give someone’s mom a body treatment, pedicure, massage or facial, we want it to the be the best body treatment, pedicure, massage or facial in Chicago!
We think the world of our moms! We think the world of your mom! And we wondered what the world thinks about Mother’s Day.
It turns out that in Thailand, they give jasmine. In Japan, it’s carnations. In Brazil, only Christmas tops Mother’s Day in terms of the kind of money that gets spent on gifts. Egypt and a number of other Arab countries celebrate Mother’s Day on March 21, the first day of spring.
Time did some reporting on Mother’s Day Around the World. According to them, this is how some other countries celebrate:
- “As early as the 16th century, the U.K. observed on the fourth Sunday of Lent a day called Mothering Sunday, when families came together to attend church. In the early 20th century, Mothering Sunday—which had evolved into a tradition of spending family time at home—was fused with the Hallmark-card-giving American holiday, but it has retained its traditional name and date (March 15 this year),” they report.
- Apparently, Mother’s Day is a big deal in Mexico. It always falls on May 10 – regardless of the day of the week. Restaurants are packed, flowers are given and music fills the air. According to Time, the celebration often includes, “a morning serenade of the song ‘Las Mananitas’ from mariachi singers.
- In Russia, Time says, “Mothers were celebrated on International Women’s Day on March 8, a celebratory date that has since become an internationally-observed day to honor women and reflect on the goal for gender equality. In 1998, post-Soviet Russia introduced Mother’s Day on the last Sunday in November, but most of the gift giving still happens in March.”
However you and your family celebrate, we hope all of you have a very happy Mother’s Day. If you would like us to make your mom feel extra special, give us a call at 312-466-9585 or purchase gift certificates online… because the best mom deserves nothing less than the best spa in Chicago!
