1COOLER The Early beginings of Motherís Day: on Thu 15 Mar 2018 - 19:35



Motherís Day started as an anti-war movement.
Anna Jarvis is most often credited with founding Mother's Day in the United States.
The earliest celebrations of motherhood can be traced to the ancient Romans and Greeks, who held festivals for their goddesses Cybele and Rhea. For some time, a popular festival called ďMothering SundayĒ was celebrated in the Christian community. During the holiday, faithful
Christians would return to the church of their home,
or ďmother churchĒ for a special service.
19th Century Roots

In 1870, suffragette Julia Ward Howe wrote a call to action called the ďMotherís Day ProclamationĒ. In the proclamation, Howe asked that all mothers join together to promote world peace. She proposed that ďMotherís Peace DayĒ be celebrated each year on June 2nd. While many worked with her to help the holiday come to fruition, the Motherís Day holiday as we know it started a few years earlier with the help of a woman named Ann Reeve Jarvis.
Motherís Day started as an anti-war movement.

Anna Jarvis is most often credited with founding Mother's Day in the United States.
Jarvis began an organization prior to the Civil War to help teach women proper child care. After the war broke out, the club meetings transformed into a support effort that helped to unify a divided country. ďMotherís Friendship DayĒ was a holiday used to help gather soldiers and promote reconciliation.
The Turn of the Century
Many years later, in 1905, when Jarvisís mother died, she proposed Motherís Day as a holiday where children and family members could honor the sacrifices of their mothers. She believed that there were already too many holidays dedicated to the honor of men, and felt it was necessary that women joined the ranks as well.

By 1912, many towns and states had accepted Motherís Day as an annual holiday. From there, Jarvis felt it was necessary to petition for the celebration to be turned into a national holiday. Just two years later, in 1914, Woodrow Wilson made it so. Unfortunately, Jarvisís joy was short lived. Not long after Motherís Day was established as a national holiday, the floral, candy, and card industries began capitalizing on the holidayís popularity as a way to bring in profits. Furious that the holiday had been commercialized, Jarvis spent the later part of her life denouncing the holiday that she had worked so hard to create less than ten years prior.
†A former football coach promoted an early version of Mother's Dayóand was accused of "kidnapping" the holiday.

Frank Hering, a former football coach and faculty member at University of Notre Dame, also proposed the idea of a Mother's Day before Anna Jarvis. In 1904 Hering urged an Indianapolis gathering of the Fraternal Order of Eagles to support ďsetting aside of one day in the year as a nationwide memorial to the memory of Mothers and motherhood.Ē
†There are more phone calls placed on Motherís Day than any other day of the year!Motherís Day continues to be celebrated as a day to honor oneís mother, and is often used as a time for families to connect.

While mothers and motherhood are celebrated in different ways all across the world, Motherís Day in America commonly falls on the second Sunday in May each year.
What is Mothering Sunday ?
Mothering Sunday. Mothering Sunday is a holiday celebrated by Catholic and Protestant Christians in some parts of Europe. It falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter Day.
