The history of Mother's Day

The history of Mother's Day is centuries old and goes back to the times of ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honor Rhea, the mother of the gods. The early Christians celebrated the Mother's festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. Interestingly, later on a religious order stretched the holiday to include all mothers, and named it as the Mothering Sunday. The English colonists settled in America discontinued the tradition of Mothering Sunday because of lack of time. In 1872 Julia Ward Howe organized a day for mothers dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother's Day.

In 1907, Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948), a Philadelphia schoolteacher, began a movement to set up a national Mother's Day in honor of her mother, Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis. She solicited the help of hundreds of legislators and prominent businessmen to create a special day to honor mothers. The first Mother's Day observance was a church service honoring Anna's mother. Anna handed out her mother's favorite flowers, the white incarnations, on the occasion as they represent sweetness, purity, and patience. Anna's hard work finally paid off in the year 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a national holiday in honor of mothers.

We Aussies also have Mothers' Day on the second Sunday of May each year.

In some things, we follow British ideas.
In some other things, American ideas.
In yet other things, our own.

Nice to be able to pick and choose like that!

Correct me if I'm wrong yet I believe in tHeBaLrOgRoCkS-country they do not have mothers. It is a strange species where in the buzzards simply find an egg and lay it on a stump, the sun hatching out the tHeBaLrOgPeBbLeS. If you don't believe me just look at the sigpic of their KiNgBoUlDeR, Vivian.

I would certainly imagine out of the relatively few "real" women who fly this game online, one or two might be a mother, but a GRANDMOTHER flying this game?!?! I'd like to see the proofs.

Do your math.....If a woman had a child at 19, and that child had a child at 19, the original woman would be a grandmother at 38..........Ideal?....Usually not, common.......absolutly.
