The Roots of Mother's Day 

Mother's Day Traditions Celebrations

Our story begins in ancient times, where civilizations celebrated maternal figures in various forms. The Greeks and Romans honored mother goddesses like Cybele and Rhea with festivals marked by feasting and merriment. In Christian tradition, Mothering Sunday emerged as a day to honor the Virgin Mary and all mothers. This observance, celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, involved children presenting their mothers with flowers and other tokens of appreciation.

Fast forward to the early 20th century, where the seeds of modern Mother's Day were sown by a remarkable woman named Anna Jarvis. Inspired by her own mother's tireless devotion, Anna campaigned tirelessly for a day dedicated to honoring mothers. Her efforts bore fruit when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day in 1914. From its humble beginnings in the United States, Mother's Day blossomed into a global phenomenon, spreading love and gratitude across continents.

But beyond the traditional gifts lies a deeper sentiment—a chance to reflect on the immeasurable impact mothers have on our lives. Whether it's a biological mother, a stepmother, or a maternal figure who has guided us with love and wisdom, Mother's Day is an opportunity to say "thank you" for the countless sacrifices and boundless love.
