Mother’s Day is a civil anniversary celebrated in honor of the mother, the motherhood and the social influence of mothers.
The origins of Mother’s Day can be traced back to the ancient Greeks, but the modern tradition owes its origin to two American women, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis who promoted various initiatives for such a celebration to be recognized nationally in the United States.
In 1914 President Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday of May a national holiday for Mother’s Day.
Today in many countries this feast is celebrated on different dates, but in almost all of Europe, the United States and Australia is celebrated on the second Sunday of May.
Even in Italy, as in the United States, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May.
The symbols of this feast are red, heart and roses, which more than any other flower represents love and beauty and can bear witness to the affection and gratitude of children.
On this day the children offer to help their mother with housework and give her flowers or chocolates and greeting cards with affectionate messages.
Very often, greeting cards are made in schools, where for the occasion almost all the teachers in Italy organize small workshops to help children create special gifts for their mothers.
In addition to greeting cards, even flowers, chocolates and perfumes are a classic gift for Mother’s Day.
