Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It is no secret that mothers work hard. Whether your mother works in or outside the home, the majority of mothers have minimal free time. Yet mothers rarely receive any gratitude for their hard work. It is assumed that mom will always be there to comfort, care and work in every possible capacity. It is time to show mothers some appreciation.

The first Mother’s Day, a 100 year tradition

In the Spring 1908, three years after the death of her Mother Ann Jarvis, Anna Jarvis celebrated the first public Mother’s Day memorial. This open celebration of her Mother’s life and works was held at Andrews Methodist Church in Grafton West Virginia, where Anna’s Mother had worked for twenty years as a Sunday School teacher.

The celebration and memorial was inspired the previous year at a private memorial when Anna had invited friends to her home to celebrate her Mother’s life. During that occasion Anna announced her intentions to create a national celebration day commemorating all Mothers.

Anna established the white carnation as the symbol of the celebration and developed other text and visual tools in honor of the event. It was Anna who coined the term, “Mother’s Day Association”, used during the period she was developing her concept of what Mother’s Day should be.

Since 1908, a celebration for mothers has taken place at the Andrews Methodist Church, now known as the International Mother’s Day Shrine, in the town of Grafton, West Virginia. This historic building has been designated a national historic Landmark and is the focal point in the town’s preparation for a centennial celebration of the first Mother’s Day in May, 2008.

Did you know there were two Mother’s Days?

Mothers Day celebrate with flowers has long been one of the favorite ways of sending a message of love to Mom or Mum depending on which country you inhabit.

Different countries celebrate Mother’s Day on various days of the year because the day has a number of different origins. The celebrations (in one form or another) have existed for over a thousand years.

One school of thought claims this day emerged from a custom of mother worship in ancient Greece, which kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of Greek gods. This festival was held around the Vernal Equinox around Asia Minor and eventually in Rome itself from the (15 March) to 18 March.

The ancient Romans also had another holiday, Matronalia, that was dedicated to Juno, though mothers were usually given gifts on this day.

In some countries the Mother’s Day began not as a celebration for individual mothers but rather for Christians as is now the case case in Britain and many parts of Europe.
