The origins of Mother's Day
Every year we celebrate our mothers to thank them for the care, protection and love they give us. This tradition has existed since ancient times: the Greeks celebrated Rhea, the mother of the gods, and the Romans began to pay tribute to women and mothers during the "Matraliae" as early as the 5th century BC.
In the 15th century, the English instituted the "Mothering Sunday", which was to become very popular throughout the world. In France, the first official "Mother's Day" was celebrated in Lyon in 1918 before becoming a national holiday in 1950. It is then definitively fixed to the last Sunday of May.
In the United States, the American Mother's Day was born in 1908 on the initiative of Anna Jarvis, who wanted to honor her own mother and all mothers. She succeeded in having this celebration adopted as a national holiday in 1914, by a decision of Congress.
Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey and Russia have followed the tradition established by the United States to celebrate their national mothers.
