HISTORY OF MOTHER’S DAY
Mother’s day is a special day that honors mothers. It is celebrated at different times and in different countries. On this day, mothers receive various gifts. People in different countries celebrate this day on different days of the year.
The mother’s day tradition begins with the annual spring festival celebrations, which the Ancient Greeks gave in honor of Rhea, the mother of many gods and goddesses in Greek mythology. The ancient Romans also celebrated the spring festivals in honor of the mother goddess Cybele 250 years before the birth of Christ.
The memorial day, which Anna Jarvis started in 1908 for her lost mother, expanded throughout the United States in 1914 with the approval of the Congress.
