Mother’s Day can be traced back to ancient Greece. The goddess Rhea was celebrated there on this day. Rhea was the mother of the god Zeus, which is why she was honoured. In today’s form Mother’s Day was shaped during the English and US-American women’s movement. Back then, so-called Mothers Day Meetings were held when mothers discussed current issues. The Methodist Anna Marie Jarvis, who held a memorial Mothers Day Meeting on 12 May, 1907, the Sunday after the second anniversary of her mother’s death, is considered to be the founder of today’s Mother’s Day. A prayer was devoted to all mothers the following year. She was also the one who tried to create an official Mother’s Day, which was already celebrated in 1909 in the USA. Mother’s Day was observed as a national public holiday for the first time in 1914.
Anna Marie Jarvis was mainly committed to peace and equality for women and ensured the poor hygiene conditions were improved, which were the main reason for high infant mortality. By introducing a public holiday, she intended to honour mothers so that their work and achievements are not forgotten. Today, Mother’s Day is mainly celebrated because we should say thank you to our Mums for everything they do for us every day.
Mothers are particularly thrilled with a “Thank you”. It goes without saying that her love for us is unconditional but all the same she works hard to make us happy every day. Many of our most wonderful childhood memories are thanks to our mother. She is the one who takes care of us, cooks for us and shows us how the world works. She is also the one who gave us life in the first place. We should honour her on this special day and thank her for everything she has done for us. At the end of the day, we would not be here without our mother.
