Mother’s Day has been celebrated for centuries. It is said that the earliest history of Mother’s Day dates to the ancient annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to maternal goddesses. Ancient Rome also celebrated a spring festival in honour of their goddesses and early on, Christian’s are said to have celebrated a Mother's Day of sorts during the festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent in admiration of the mother of Christ. In England the holiday was expanded to include all mothers where it was renamed to Mothering Sunday.
Today, Mother’s Day is celebrated in several countries across the world, including the US, UK, India, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, Mexico, Canada, China, Japan, and Belgium. The dates of the event vary over the globe, however at the root, people take this opportunity to pay tribute to their mother’s, thanking them for all the love and support given since birth. This comes with a tradition of gifting items such as flowers, chocolates or something else their mother may love.
