Do any of you know how mothers day begun?.
The celebration of Motherhood and being honoured on a specific day actually started as far back as the Greeks, the Romans also honoured mothers. Early Christians honoured mothers on the Fourth day of Lent in honour of the Virgin Mary. For a period of time the "tradition" of honouring Mothers died down until a woman named Julia Ward Howe started working hard to get people to recognize a day to honour all that mothers do. She wanted Mothers Day to be celebrated on June 2nd of each year. It is however Ann Jarvis who is credited with actually getting Mothers Day recognized. She worked tirelessly, writing to all who held a position of power that we needed to have a national day of recognition. Finally on May 8, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson signed a declaration that the second Sunday in May would now officially be Mother's Day.
