When is Mothers Day?

In the United States, Mother's Day is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May, so the date changes every year. Although Mother's Day is a national holiday celebrated in the U.S. Widely observed in the U.S., it is not a federal or public holiday (when businesses are closed).

History of mother's day

A day to honor mothers has existed for as long as there have been mothers. In ancient times festivals honoring mothers were often associated with goddesses and maternal symbols of the cycles of fertility, birth, creativity and growth. Mother is the protector and nurturer of the children and by extension, of all humanity. The Phrygians held a celebration for Cybele, the great mother of the gods. The Greeks and Romans also respected the maternal figure of their gods. Even today, an important festival in India, Durga Puja, honors the goddess Durga.


During the Middle Ages, people would return to their home or "mother" church once a year in the middle of Lent. (At the time, children often went to work as young as 10!) Historians believe that it was the return of the "mother" church that allowed children to take the day off to visit their mother and family. Went.


In 16th century England, the celebration became "Mothering Sunday". Children - mainly daughters who went to work as domestic servants - would be given leave on the fourth Sunday of Lent to return to their mother and home parish. The eldest son or daughter will bring a "mothering cake", which will be cut and shared by the whole family. Family reunions were the order of the day, with sons and daughters handling all household duties and preparing a special dinner in their mother's honor. Sometimes during the day, Mother accompanied her family to special church meetings.


Mothering Sunday was also known as Refreshment Sunday; The fasting rules were relaxed for that day. (Often, the gospel for the day was that Jesus was feeding loaves of bread to the crowd.) The traditional cake, called a Simnel cake, is a fruit cake with two layers of almond paste. The cake was made with 11 balls of marzipan icing on top representing the 11 disciples. (Judas is not included.) Traditionally, Chinese violets would also be added.


In the United States, three women were most instrumental in establishing the Mother's Day tradition: Ann Reeves Jarvis, Julia Ward Howe, and Ann's daughter, Anna M. Jarvis. Learn more about these three great women who fought for the welfare, health and peace of children.


Some ways to celebrate mom this year

There are big things involved, but here are 10 creative ways to show mom a little extra comfort, love, and recognition. After all, mom is always there for us!


Provide yard and garden services.


If you're local to your mom, give her a "gift certificate" to your family's yard and garden services. Help him by laying mulch. Put the "certificate" in a flower pot with the bulbs planted in spring that flower throughout the summer.

If you're not a local, what about a subscription to Garden Planner, the Old Farmer's Almanac? Any gardener would love it! And it's available immediately with no shipping!



Decorate your mother's door or give flowers!


If you're around, you can have fun decorating your mom's front door with streamers, special signs, wreaths, and flowers! If you have kids, get them involved! Mom or Grandma will love the surprise.

Of course, flowers and plants are always enjoyable. If you're a local, have the plants delivered to her porch in person. If you're not a local, most locations always have delivery (but order well ahead!).



A rose bush or geranium plant is always welcome.

Or, perhaps a dogwood or flowering shrub would be appreciated for her garden.

Buying cut flowers? See symbolic meanings of common flowers!

Here's another idea! Make a bouquet of flowers for each child's monthly birth.




Give your mom a long phone call or take part in a virtual talent show!


Talk to him (or video chat) and make him laugh. Maybe throw in some good "mom jokes".

Put on a talent show! It can be simple. Sing a song, do some gymnastics, play an instrument.


 Watch a movie or show together.


If you're all in the same place at home, take a movie that night that has a theater performance.

If you're in different places, watch the same movie on your computer at the same time. Or, start a marathon of your favorite TV series by indulging in a glass of wine or cup of tea.

(Did you know? Netflix even has a way to watch online. If you and your mom have a Netflix account and Chrome is installed on their laptop or desktop, you can watch a movie together! Comment live There's also a group chat function for. Wherever you are in the world while you film. Watch Netflix Party.)




 Get creative: make mom a video, a music playlist, or a piece of art!


Record a video from all the kids. They can each say "Happy Mother's Day" and they appreciate why. You can always use iMovie to split videos on your phone together.

Or, make a tape or music playlist. You can collect calming songs for bedtime, such as the sound of the ocean. Or, you can collect her favorite songs from the era she loves the most. (If your mom has an iPhone, create a special iTunes playlist she'll receive by email.)

What's a special work of art like for mom? For example, paint the outside of a terra-cotta flower pot and fill it with garden seeds and a card. Or, create a beautiful photo frame with the photos inside your family. You can find many ideas on Pinterest and elsewhere on the web.
