The First Easter. The first American Easter was celebrated in the 5th century, On February 14, Valentine was beheaded, not only because he was a Christian, but also because he had performed a miracle. He supposedly cured the jailer's daughter of her blindness. The night before he was executed, he wrote the jailer's daughter a farewell letter, signing it "From Your Valentine."
Mother’s Day, Mothering Sunday, Fête des Mères, Día de las Madres, Muttertag, La Festa della Mamma, it goes by many different names, however you wish to say it, the expression of appreciation and love for your mother is the same. Today's modern version of what know as "Mother's Day" with families sending Mother's Day flowers, gifts and chocolate to their moms can be traced way back to the seventeenth century in England.
In early history springtime was when they held
festivities to honor the goddess in all women. Most of the mothering festivals
to celebrate the rebirth of the land and the beginning of the most fertile time
of the year.
The Original Mother's Day was actually called
Mothering Sunday and was on the fourth Sunday in Lent...The family gathered for
a mid-Lenten feast with Mother as the special guest. Mothering Sunday was a
special day when all strict rules about penance and fasting were put aside. The
older children returned home for Mothering Sunday who were away working learning
a trade or working as servants. Along with a rare visit from her children,
mothers were given treats of wildflower bouquets and homemade cakes, cookies and
other baked goods. While ‘Mothering Sunday’ is still celebrated, most now know
it as Mother’s Day.
Julia Ward Howe, who wrote the words to the Battle Hymn of the Republic, suggested the idea of an International Mother's day to celebrate peace and motherhood in 1872. There were many other women who were active with local groups holding annual Mother's Day remembrances, but most were more religious gatherings and not the holiday that we know today.
mother of Anna Jarvis was another woman who was working on establishing Mother's
Day as a national celebration. Mrs. Jarvis wanted to hold this annual gathering
the heal the pain the the Civil War and originally called it Mother's Friendship
Day. Anna campaigned to make Mother's Day an official holiday after her mother
died in 1905 to commemorate her mother and devoted her entire life to the
struggle to have Mother's Day declared a national holiday however it was her
daughter Anna Jarvis's campaign that actually is the reason we have a formal
Mother's Day may not have turned out to be the holiday
that Anna Jarvis or Julia Ward Howe expected it to be.
Anna Jarvis was actually arrested at a Mother's Day
festival because she was trying to stop people and women
from selling flowers. Mother's Day changed from being a
special day of appreciation and semi-religious occasion
of prayers and a day of peace to a pagan world where it
was all about selling gift, candy, flowers and and whole
dining out extravaganza. Jarvis said "I wanted it to be
a day of sentiment not profit."
