Annunciation of the Lord and First Communion Link Data

The new data suggests that majority of communion purchase takes place around the two week of Annunciation of the Lord's Day.

LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- This year Annunciation of the Lord's Day will be celebrated on March 25 2014. Unless the date falls on Sunday, every year, in many Christian traditions and especially in Catholic tradition Annunciation is celebrated on March 25. This was the day when angel Gabriel appeared to the Blessed Mary and announced that she is chosen to become Mother of Jesus Christ. Mother Mary played very important role in this Gods plan to redeem mankind. Sometimes Annunciation is said to be more important than Christmas itself.


First  Holy Communion is one of the seven Sacraments of Catholic Church. At the age of 7 when a person becomes capable to reason, he/she under goes first communion.  For some this makes First Communion even more important than Baptism, because usually baptism takes place in infancy when baby have no role to play.

Now new data suggests a link between these two special occasions.. NooriDresses are one of the leading retailers of First Communion Dresses and according to their stats, sales  for  First communion dresses peaks around Annunciation day. The question is when communion ceremonies are not held until May then why the sales pick near Annunciation? And especially the sales of girl communion dresses. There can be multiple reasons. Since First Communion being one of the most important days in Girls life, parents want to make sure they are ready for the event and they prepare early.  But this does not answer why around Annunciation day only and why not in January or in February? Other reason could be Mother Mary. For Catholics, Mother Mary remains the timeless role model for all the women. The feast of Annunciation of the most Holy Lady becomes the motivating factor in getting ready for First communion spiritually and physically.
