History of International Mother’s Day
In the United States, a celebration of International Mother’s Day began in the early 20th century. It is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood). In some countries, Mother’s Day has become compatible with these older traditions. In most countries, Mother’s Day is an observance derived from the holiday as it has evolved in the United States. As chosen by other nations and cultures, the holiday has various meanings, is associated with various events (religious, historical, or legendary), and is celebrated on different dates. In some cases, countries previously had existing celebrations honoring motherhood, and their celebrations then adopted several external components from the US holiday, such as giving carnations and other presents to one’s mother.
