Did you know that?
Similar holidays around the world have existed for a long time in history, for example in ancient Greece, the feast of fertility and mothers was celebrated, associated with the worship of the pagan goddess Rhey = Cybele, the mother of the gods.
In England in the 16th century, this holiday was celebrated as "Mother Sunday" and fell on the Lenten season before Easter. People who were serving the rich at that time and were far from home could not spend time together with their mothers. Therefore, the servants were given time off to this day so that they could return home or visit the church in their hometown, where their mothers and other relatives lived.
The idea of international and regular celebrations of this holiday arose in 1907 in honor of Anna Reeves Jarvis, who fought for the rights of mothers. It was first publicly celebrated a year later. In 1914, then-US President Woodrow Wilson announced the first official Mother's Day celebration as a national holiday on the second Sunday in May.
