Mother's Day

This Sunday is Mother's Day in the UK, but it will not be until 13th May in the US this year.

The earliest mention of Mother's Day goes back to spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods. During the 1600's, England celebrated "Mothering Sunday" on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter). Then, many of the England's poor worked as servants for the wealthy. As most were employed far from their homes, the servants would live at the houses of their employers. On Mothering Sunday the servants had the day off and encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers.

In the United States Mother's Day was first suggested in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe as a day dedicated to peace. Then in 1914, Ana Jarvis from Philadelphia, with the help of the church, managed to persuade President Woodrow Wilson to make the second Sunday of May a national holiday in honor of the anniversary of her mother's death.

However, many countries celebrate Mother's Day at different times throughout the year - but Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium also celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May.
