It’s Good Friday; the start of the Easter weekend holidays for people of the Christian faith. The celebration is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Chris made. He was arrested, tried and hung on a cross to die by the Romans of the day. Christians believe that he died for their sins, so that they may be given a new life. He is seen as the Son of God and the proof of that is in his resurrection three days later on Easter Sunday. It concludes the forty day fast of Lent, incorporates Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and of course Easter Sunday. Many attend church to listen to the Gospels, get baptized (newly converted), and receive the Eucharist (High Communion). Nowadays, a newer custom of collecting Easter eggs left out by the Easter Bunny has children looking forward to the holidays with glee. Regardless of how you celebrate, this weekend is a special one, and Babybox.com is excited too.

heart sterling silver baby box
Right from the start
You stole my heart
With arms flung wide
and no thought to pride
love for all wall art by donna ingemanson
You strained, panted and pushed
and I have to admit, I ambushed
your vast and unsuspecting love,
with that big final shove!
Until all the world could see
and hear the cries from me,
As silent were your tears
and in them held all fears
baby shower favor - star is born cookie cutter
For you saw skinned knees,
me begging for cookies, “please!”
My triumphs and vast failures
like puddle jumping & resulting epic soakers
puppy musical pull toy by north american bear
But the tears of joy beat every frown
with visions of me in graduation gown
and playing with my best friend gooch
(my nickname for the neighborhood pooch)
And I hope you would do it all again
Because my love for you will never wane
You are my one and only Mom
you are the best, you’re truly the bomb!*
Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful ladies out there that made the decision to become Mommies. You made the right choice and Babybox.com loves you for it! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and are spoiled rotten from sunup to sundown!

Happy Boxing Day to all our Canadian friends today. We thought we would help you celebrate, by sharing some of our boxes with you today. Not sure exactly what all you do with them, but who are we to question another country’s traditions. Let’s get boxing!
Here we have an example of one of the many toy boxes that we have available. The Jacqueline’s Garden hand painted toy box by Sweet Beginnings is a beautiful and practical accessory for your room. The toy box features pretty hand painted butterflies and is designed to function as a spacious toy chest and bench seat. The elegant and beautifully detailed box can store all of your child’s toys as well as extra pillows, blankets or comforters in any room. Available in many base colors, we recommend using a light shade to enhance the design. The piece is shown above with monogram (additional cost). Finely crafted, there is a space between the base of the chest and the lid to prevent a child’s fingers from becoming caught. The toy box is a great addition to any room!
How about a smaller box, like our personalized ceramic boxes. This is a delightful gift for a baby. Hand painted with your choice of pink or green stripes around perimeter, and “Favorite Little Things” or “Treasures” script. Personalized with the child’s name, this is a wonderful keepsake for years to come.
Of course there is always the lunch box. Note: this is just one example of the many that we have available. Your little ones are going to love this colorsplash lunch box! This colorsplash will make lunch time fun!.These fabulous lunchboxes are perfect for storing toys, crafts or snacks in your home, car, class or for play dates. Personalize it with the child’s name!
Or perhaps you would like the practical box shown here – the tissue box. The sail boat tissue box in blue is great for any room in the home (bedroom, nursery, bathroom or kitchen).

Well look at those lucky Canadians! Aren’t they a smart bunch, giving themselves another long weekend during the summer months. Yes, our neighbors to the North are celebrating a Civic Holiday today! While it comes in different names across the country, it does amount to a celebration and day off for most Canadians today to celebrate their home Province’s heritage. So whether it be “British Columbia Day”, “Natal Day” (PEI) or just plain old “Civic Holiday”, Babybox.com hopes that all Canadians enjoy their day off. I am sure while we are working away, they will be enjoying barbecues, picnics, trips to the beach and fireworks displays. Well good for you! We love celebrations of any kind, so will celebrate with you today!
So for my American friends that are not quite in the know, a province is the equivalent of our American States. There are only 10 provinces and 3 territories in Canada, compared to our 50 states. That being said, Canada is the second largest country in the world. That’s right, they are bigger than the US! We rank third largest in a tight race with China. So the upshot of that is that all those Provinces up in Canada are pretty big and worthy of a celebration.
Another thing that I stumbled upon in my exploration of this Canadian Holiday is a link to emancipation. In fact, Emancipation Day is celebrated on August 1st in many former British colonies, including many Caribbean countries. They all celebrate the end of slavery for people of African decent. That is definitely worthy of noting and celebrating, we think. Hip hip hooray to that!
With a day off though, I know what I would be doing. Yes, I would be sitting back relaxing with friends and family. You would find me, on a hot day like today, at the beach or pool. Or maybe just relaxing beside a special someone in my Adirondack chairs, raising a glass of cheer to life and the land that I live in. I wouldn’t doubt that many Canadians today are doing just that.
So Happy Heritage Day Alberta! Happy Saskatchewan Day all Saskatchewinians! May all you New Brunswickers enjoy New Brunswick Day. And Happy Civic Holiday to the rest of our Canadian friends on this fine day to celebrate all things Canadian.
