Things to do this Mothers Day

There’s so much to see and do around Bristol at any time of year, but especially now since the weather is getting brighter and the days are getting longer. With Mother’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about how to best treat her with some interesting things to do this mothers day! Mother’s Day wouldn’t be the same without some delicious food, but aside from dining on the day, here are some ideas for things to do around Bristol to make a day of it.

Take a boat tour

Bristol is one of the best cities for anything related to the creative arts. There are so many Theatres, big and small, to choose from – it only depends on what you’re looking for!

Alternatives To Valentine’s Day (From across the globe)

Needing an alternative to the norm this year? Trying to think outside of the (heart-shaped) box? We thought we would round up some alternatives to Valentine’s Day, whether you’re lovers, friends, colleagues or rolling solo this V day.

via GIPHY

Columbia’s Party with a twist

In Columbia, locals celebrate not only love but friendship as well. September 20th is their “Day of love and friendship” – not just for those in a pair but also friends and singles alike. There are mass dinners and parties where friends come together for some epic partying, a form of ‘secret Santa turns secret admirer’ where colleagues and friends exchange surprise gifts, and clubs restaurants and shops fill with hearts!

via GIPHY

China’s Star-crossed lovers

The Chinese celebrate love a little differently too. Known as “Double Seven Day” or “Qixi” this day tells a story of two star-crossed lovers, a farmer and a fairy, who are separated by the Milky Way. There are lots of traditions that go along with this celebration of love but these days they also partake in group activities such as kissing competitions, underwater kissing shows and mass weddings (of course).

via GIPHY

The Welsh Love Spoon

Here’s something a bit different! The Welsh celebrate the story of Saint Dwynwen, the patron saint of lovers. While the actual story is… a little depressing, today the locals still celebrate the tradition a little more light heartedly by carving a ‘lovespoon’ to present to their beloved. Best start now, this is probably not a skill you learn overnight!

via GIPHY

For the hopeless romantics…

Italy. Possibly the most loved up nation in the world and home to Shakespeare’s famous star-crossed lovers, you need not go farther if you are a bit of a hopeless romantic. Verona in Love is a four-day festival celebrating, well, love. There’s heart shaped lanterns, love-letter competitions and other massive events. So if you and your loved one are all for romance then Italy may be the place for you.

via GIPHY

Singletons UNITE!

Jumping over to France now where you’ll find both the celebration of love but also pay homage to those going Valentine’s Day alone. Traditionally, the holiday is marked with an event called “drawing for love” which essentially is like a bad recollection of high school where you get called on last in team selections. However; single girls got their revenge by holding a mass bonfire where they would burn photos of potential partners that may have wronged them. Yeesh!

valentines-day-bristol

Love has been a celebration for many centuries, and as this list shows there is no right or wrong way to go about it! All that matters is that you spend it with the person (or people) that you love. Whatever your tradition may be, you can’t go wrong with wine, amazing food and a gorgeous backdrop, so if you’re looking to make some plans for Valentine’s Day, why not book in here at No.4
