Read on to learn about where Mother’s day came from, and where to go to get some delicious food.
Mother’s Day and the celebration of motherhood can be traced all the way back to the ancient Greek and Roman cultures. They held festivals and celebrations in honor of their mother goddesses named Rhea and Cybele.
The more directly related historic holiday was celebrated my early Christians and called “Mothering Sunday.” The holiday was celebrated during the weeks preceding Easter and was a time when believers would return home to their “mother church” for a special service. Over time, the holiday became more and more secular.
The U.S. made Mother’s Day a recognized national holiday in 1914 and it was moved to the second Sunday in May. Disappointed with the commercialization of the holiday, Anna Jarvis, the U.S. holiday’s original creator, spent the latter part of her life attempting to get it removed from the calendar. However, we still celebrate Mother’s Day to this day, by offering gifts, flowers, and pampering to our hard-working mothers. So, what shall you do for your mother for 2016?
