Mother's Day History

The historical roots of the occasion are associated with ancient Greek and Roman traditions. There is a similar tradition of Mother's Day celebration among Christians in England.

To understand the rise of the significance of Mother's Day celebrations, one needs to go back to the early 20th century. During that time, the ancient Greeks and Romans used to celebrate festivals to honour mother goddesses like Rhea and Cybele. These celebrations were mostly held during springtime and were dedicated to fertility and motherhood.

Celebrations dedicated to mothers were also popular among Christians during ‘Mothering Sunday’. On ‘Mothering Sundays', people used to return to their mother church, which used to be the main cathedral of their area. Visit to the mother church was more about offering prayers with families after which children would present flowers and gifts to their mothers.
