Mother’s Day and its origin
For most of us, Mother is the most important or one of the most important people in our life. Mothering Sunday is coming quickly. Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Mother’s Day and when it all started?
The origin of Mother’s Day date back to ancient Greek times. The ancient Greeks dedicated an annual spring festival to the maternal goddess. Ancient Romans also celebrated spring called Hilaria which was for a mother goddess called Cybele.
In the UK the Mother’s Day is always the fourth Sunday of Lent, the 24 hours mark the bond between mother and child. As well as other maternal figures. Mothers in law, grandmothers, and step mums.
In the UK we celebrate Mother’s day exactly 3 weeks before Easter. It has now evolved into a day of appreciation for all the maternal figures in our lives. Traditionally gift such as flowers and chocolate, but you can definitely be more creative than that. For example with our great offer!
As already mentioned, Mother’s day is dated back to ancient Greek, but the way we celebrate it now started in America in the early 20th century.
