The History of Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is set aside to honor motherhood in all its forms. The history of Mother’s Day began in ancient times when the Greeks and Romans held festivals to honor the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele.
The first modern Christian form of Mother’s Day was known as “Mothering Sunday.” It occurred on the 4th Sunday of Lent when people would return to their “mother” church for a special service.
As time went on this holiday shifted, to a day when children would present their mothers with small gifts of love and appreciation.
Mother’s Day didn’t become an official holiday in the United States until 1914. There are several women we have to thank for Mother’s Day as we know it today.
Ann Reeves Jarvis, Julia Ward Howard, and Juliet Calhoun Blakely pioneered for women in their own ways.
Ann Reeves Jarvis taught women how to care for their children before the civil war. Later, after the civil war, she organized “Mother’s Friendship Day,” in which mothers came together with both Union and Confederate soldiers to encourage reconciliation.
Julia Ward Howard, an abolitionist, and suffragette wrote the “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” which asked mothers everywhere to promote world peace.
Juliet Calhoun Blakely inspired a local Mother’s Day in Albion, Michigan.
But it wasn’t until Anna Jarvis, the daughter of Ann Jarvis, worked to make Mother’s Day a nationally recognized holiday, that Mother’s Day as we know it, became official in 1914. In later years, she worked to remove it from the calendar, due to the commercialization of the holiday.
