Where did Mother’s Day come from?
The concept of honoring mothers and motherhood can be traced back to ancient Greece and Rome, where festivals were held in honor of mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. However, the modern Mother’s Day that we celebrate today was first observed in the 20th century in the USA, thanks to the efforts of Anna Jarvis.
In Estonia, the tradition of Mother’s Day dates back to the summer of 1922, when Helmi Mäelo organized a festive Mother’s Day in Uderna to honor her mother. Since then, this special day has become a cherished tradition, with children expressing their love and appreciation for their mothers and grandmothers through gifts like flowers, chocolates, cakes, and heartfelt cards.
On this day, husbands also show their love and appreciation for their wives by gifting them with flowers, and often surprise them with a special breakfast prepared with the help of their children. Let’s continue to honor and cherish the mothers and mother figures in our lives, and make this Mother’s Day one to remember!
