Mother's Day: A Modern Celebration with Ancient Roots

Mother's Day, as we know it today, originated in North America to honor mothers and motherhood. It's a modern take on a much older tradition, with ancient Greeks and Romans celebrating mother goddesses. Christians also observed a similar holiday called Mothering Sunday.

The modern American version can be traced back to the 19th century with individuals like Julia Ward Howe advocating for a Mother's Day dedicated to peace. Woodrow Wilson ultimately signed a resolution making Mother's Day a national observance in 1914.

Celebrated on different days around the world, Mother's Day is a chance to express love and appreciation for mothers through gifts, visits, or special outings. While the day may have a modern origin, it reflects a timeless sentiment

Mother's Day: A Modern Celebration with Ancient Roots

It's almost Mother's Day, and that means it's time for surprises! I've been secretly working on a card with glitter and macaroni noodles (because macaroni makes everything awesome). Maybe I'll help bake cupcakes too, even if I lick the bowl a little too much. Most importantly, I want to give Mom a big hug and tell her how much I love her breakfast in bed (with a little help from Dad, of course!). There is more! Just scroll down for the goodies!

Happy Mother's Day
