WHY MOTHERS DAY???
The history of Mothers Day is centuries old and goes back to the times of ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honour Rhea, the mother of the Gods. The early Christians celebrated the Mothers festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent to honour Mary, the mother of Christ.
Interestingly, later on, a religious order stretched the holiday to include all mothers, and named it the Mothering Sunday. The English colonists settled in America and discontinued the tradition of Mothering Sunday because of lack of time.
In 1872 Julia Ward Howe organised a day for mothers dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mothers Day.
In 1907, Anna M. Jarvis (1864-194, a Philadelphia schoolteacher, began a movement to set up a national Mothers Day in honour of her mother, Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis. She solicited the help of hundreds of legislators and prominent businessmen to create a special day to honour mothers.
The first Mothers Day observance was a church service honouring Annas mother. Her hard work finally paid off in 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a national holiday in honour of mothers
Who ran to help me when I fell, And would some pretty story tell, Or kiss the place to make it well?
