Time to treat Mum
You probably celebrate her all year long…but this month sees a day in her honour; Mother’s Day of course!
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate mothers and all mother figures such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers-in-law and everything they do. The origins of Mother’s Day date back to the ancient Greek times and more recent origins of Mothering Sunday in the UK is said to date back to the 1600s when it was held on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
It is thought that children who had left their families to work in domestic service were allowed to go to their home – or “mother” – church.
More recently, the popularity of the day owes much to the American festival of Mother’s Day, which is held later in the year. It was created in 1907 by Anna Jarvis, who held a memorial for her mother Ann Jarvis, a peace activist who treated wounded soldiers in the American Civil War. Her daughter campaigned for a day to honour the role played by mothers following Ann’s death, and the idea gained such traction that by 1911 all US states observed the holiday.
