The history of Mother’s Day is a modern one and it is a counterpart of Father’s Day. It was believed that Greeks themselves had celebrated this day in some form, but there is no actual proof to support this theory.
In the UK, the holiday came about based on the old Christian tradition of visiting your mother church once every year. As is the case, most people did this around Easter time, which is why the holiday appeared around that time too. The tradition had somewhat waned and it had come into full practice when it was first made into an official holiday by US President Woodrow Wilson and has been celebrated ever since, spreading easily around Western World together with the emancipation of women.
There are also other celebrations of this day on different dates and in somewhat different forms, depending on where you are in the world of course. In Japan, for example, flowers are almost an official gift and the holiday is marketed just as much as it is in the UK and the US. Whilst in China, the holiday is not yet official but is certainly rising in popularity with more and more people showing interest and sending gifts to their mums.
The most important thing is that Mother’s Day is a special time that we have all come to appreciate, celebrate and love. It is also certain that it will be celebrated long into the future with all of us making sure that our mums know how special they are to us.
