What is the history of Mother’s Day?
Mother’s Day is our annual celebration of our mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-law as well as our wives, aunts, cousins and sisters who are also ‘moms’. Motherhood is a precious and crucial role in any community and contributes to the success of any society, hence our hard-working moms should be celebrated.
“Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as ‘Mothering Sunday.’ The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts.” – History.com
