Mother's Day -

Cards / Flowers: Mother's Day developed in different ways in many countries. This is because Mother's Day has different origins in different countries and therefore takes place on different days of the year. A school of thought claims that this day arose from the custom of mother worship in ancient Greece. Mother Worship, which is a festival for Cybele, a great mother of the gods, and Rhea, wife of Cronus, was held around Asia Minor from March 15 to March 18. They insist that this custom spread around the world. Mother Sunday is the celebration of motherhood in the United Kingdom. It is also known as Mid-lent Sunday, Rose Sunday, and Laetare Sunday. It originally comes from the Victorian practice of allowing servants to return home to visit their mothers on that day. In the United States was Julia Ward Howe (born May 27, 1819 in the United States, USA; real name Julia Ward Howe) was an American abolitionist, social activist and poet. Howe's Battle Hymn of the Republic was first published in the Atlantic Monthly in 1862 and quickly became one of the most popular songs for the Union during the American Civil War. After the war, she focused on the causes of pacifism and women's suffrage. In 1870 she was the first to pronounce Mother's Day with her Mother's Day proclamation. US President Woodrow Wilson approved Mother's Day in 1914
