Mother's Day is the one day a year most of us honor one of the most important people (let's face it, none of us would even be here if it wasn't for her!) in our lives; mum! But how did it all start?
Celebrations of mothers/motherhood can be traced all the way back to the ancient Romans and Greeks, who were known to hold festivals in honor of the mother goddess Cybele, who was regarded as the giver of life to gods, human beings and animals. Jump ahead a few years and the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday”, held on the fourth Sunday of Lent, it was a day for people to return to their home towns to go to special church services in the church they originally went to as children — called their mother church.
Over the centuries Mother's day eventually evolved into something much less religious and into a special day where children and adults alike would honor their mother's for all they have done for them and of course, give their mothers flowers and gifts of thanks on Mothering Sunday.
