Happy Mother’s Day

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, a time to celebrate those that have been a major force of support and inspiration in your life. Be it your mother, caregiver, or any person in your life who has guided you, it is time to say thank you – and shower them with love (and gifts!).

Origins

The origins of Mother’s Day start with the Greeks and Romans celebrating mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele with festivals. The contemporary inspiration comes from the older Christian tradition of “Mothering Sunday,” in which devoted followers would return to their mother church for Lent services. As the years progressed, the tradition turned into holiday in which children honor their mothers with gifts, such as flowers and mementoes.

Modern Holiday

Traditional American Mother’s Day owes its place on the calendar to Anna Jarvis. After the death of her mother in 1905, she pushed for a permanent way to honor all mothers, as well as establish a holiday that celebrates the achievement of women (at the time most holidays were androcentric). Anna Jarvis’ mission to pay tribute to mothers resulted in President Woodrow Wilson declaring the second Sunday in May officially Mother’s Day.

Thank You

Though every day should be Mother’s Day, it is time to officially pay tribute to mom. Did you know Mother’s Day holds the record for most phone calls made in a day, topping every other day of the year? Time to make that phone call, send those flowers and gifts, and remind moms everywhere how important they are.
