The First Mother's Day 
On May 9, 1914, Think of all the work that mothers do in raising their children. Mothers need to be celebrated! President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed May 9, 1914, the first Mother's Day. He asked Americans on that day to give a public "thank you" to their mothers and all mothers. Mother's Day is now celebrated with gifts, visits, and flowers. Around the world like in England, France, Sweden, Denmark, India, China, and Mexico, they celebrate that day. Of course, if you ask your mom, she might tell you that every day is Mother's Day.


History of mothers Day:



The history of the Mother's Day was centuries old. The earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea who is the Mother of the Gods. During the 1600's, the early Christians in England was celebrated a day to honor Mary who was the mother of Jesus Christ. By a religious order, the holiday was later expanded in its scope to include all mothers and named as the Mothering Sunday. Celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter), "Mothering Sunday" honored the mothers of England.

In the US, the Mother's Day was loosely inspired by the British day. it was first suggested after the American Civil War by social activist Julia Ward Howe. Howe was who wrote the words to the Battle hymn of the Republic. Howe was horrified by the carnage of the Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. In the year of 1870, she has tried to issued a manifesto for peace at international peace conferences in London and Paris. it was much like the later Mother's Day Peace Proclamation. During the Franco-Prussian war in the 1870s, Julia has began a one-woman peace crusade and made an impassioned "appeal to womanhood" to rise against war. She composed in Boston a powerful plea that same year (generally considered to be the original Mothers' Day proclamation*) translated it into several languages and distributed it widely. In the year of 1872, she went to London to promote an international Woman's Peace Congress. She has began to promoting the idea of a "Mother's Day for Peace" to be celebrated on June 2, honoring peace, motherhood, and womanhood. In the Boston Mass, she has initiated a Mothers' Peace Day observance on the second Sunday in June. That was to be established as an annual event and practiced for at least 10 years. That day was, however, mainly intended to call to make unite women against war. Due to her efforts in year of 1873, women in 18 cities of America held a Mother's Day for Pace gathering. Howe rigorously championed the cause of official celebration of Mothers Day and declaration of official holiday on the day. She held meetings every year in Boston on Mother's Peace Day and took care that the day was well-observed. The celebrations have died out when she has turned her efforts to working for peace and women's rights in other ways. Howe was failed in her attempt that to get the formal recognition of a Mother's Day for Peace. Her exceptional contribution for the establishment of Mother's Day, it always remains the fact about she has organized the Mother's Day was dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother's Day in the sense that was to be the precursor to the modern Mother's Day celebrations. To remain Howe's achievements, a stamp was issued in her honor in 1988.

When is Mothering Sunday?

The date of Mothering Sunday in the UK changes every year. It does not correspond to the Mother's Day festival in the US which falls on the second Sunday in the month of May. Mothering Sunday is in England is always celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter) in honor of Mary, the mother of  Jesus Christ. 

Since the date of the festival falls half way between Shrove Tuesday and Good Friday in the middle of the Lent Mothering Sunday are also called Mid-Lend Sunday. And as the day of Lent and Easter varies every year so also the day of Mothering Sunday. Mothering Sunday is celebrated on May 14, 2017.

History/Origin of Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday History in the UK is centuries old. It goes back to the time of early Christians in England who celebrated a Mothers festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of Virgin Mary. Someone believes that the ceremonies in honor of Roman mother goddess, Cybele were adopted by the early church to worship Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ. Others say the Mother Church was substituted for Mother Goddess and according to a custom laid a person visit the church of his/her baptism (Mother Church) on this day. 

The origin of Mothering Sunday can also be traced to the fact that in early times people in England as a tradition visited their nearest parish called, "Daughter Church" on every Sunday. Also in those times, in the 1600s, children after the age of ten left their homes for jobs as an apprentice or domestic servants. It was considered as very important by the people that these children be allowed to visit their home and mother church once a year. Accordingly, once in a year, in the middle of the Lent, the children were given a leave by their employers to visit their "Mother Church" or Cathedral of their hometown. These children are going to their homes brought along gifts, flowers and special cakes for their mothers. These visits thus became a time for family reunions and over a period time. This holiday is meant for the return to Mother Church was stretched to include all mothers and that day was named as Mothering Sunday. 

Celebrating Mothering Sunday

Today is the festival of Mothering Sunday. It will be the perfect time for the children to give presents, flowers, cards and special cakes to their mothers to express their love and gratitude towards their mothers. The festival has been commercialized to a great extent. People dine out with their mothers. Those who are staying away from home town, they will call to their mothers on phone to show their appreciation and love.


Mothering Sunday or Refreshment Sunday

Mothering Sunday was also known as the Refreshment Sunday because the fasting rules for Lent for the people were relaxed on that day. Besides both Old and New testament lessons on mid-Lent, Sunday made a point of food. The Gospel reading from the New Testament told the story of  Jesus how he was fed five thousand people with only five small barley loaves and two small fish. (John 6:10-12)

In northern England and Scotland, people like to have carvings - pancakes prepared from steeped peas fried in butter, with pepper and salt. Therefore, in some locations, this day was called Carling Sunday. 

The more commonly prepared dish of Mothering Sunday is Simnel Cake. Sometimes furmity - wheat grains boiled in sweet milk, sugared and spiced was also served.

Simnel Cake

Simnel Cake is a special food item which is associated with Mothering Sunday. A Simnel cake is a rich fruit cake with a layer of almond paste on top and also in the middle. The cake is made up of 11 balls of marzipan (a confection made of ground almonds or almond paste, egg whites and sugar, often molded into decorative shapes) icing on top representing the 11 disciples (Judas is not included). The cake was boiled in water, then baked. The Lenten fast dictated that the simnel cake is kept until Easter. 

The word Simnel is said to have been derived from the Latin word "SIMILA" which means a fine wheat flour mainly used for baking a cake. There is also an interesting legend associated with the use of the word Simnel. It says that a man is called Simon and his wife Nell had an argument over whether the Mothering Sunday cake should be baked or boiled. Ultimately, they did both. So the cake came be to named after by both of them and was called, 'SIM-NELL'.

History of mothers Day:

The history of the Mother's Day was centuries old. The earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea who is the Mother of the Gods. During the 1600's, the early Christians in England was celebrated a day to honor Mary who was the mother of Jesus Christ. By a religious order, the holiday was later expanded in its scope to include all mothers and named as the Mothering Sunday. Celebrated on the 4th Sunday, in the Month of May Given (the 40 day period leading up to Easter), "Mothering Sunday" praised the mothers of England.

In the US, the Mother's Day was loosely inspired by the British day. it was first suggested after the American Civil War by social activist Julia Ward Howe. Howe was who wrote the words to the Battle hymn of the Republic. Howe was horrified by the carnage of the Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. In the year of 1870, she has tried to issued a manifesto for peace at international peace conferences in London and Paris. it was much like the later Mother's Day Peace Proclamation. During the Franco-Prussian war in the 1870s, Julia has begun a one-woman peace crusade and made an impassioned "appeal to womanhood" to rise against war. She composed in Boston a powerful plea that same year (generally considered to be the original Mothers' Day proclamation*) translated it into several languages and distributed it widely. In the year of 1872, she went to London to promote an international Woman's Peace Congress. She has begun to promoting the idea of a "Mother's Day for Peace" to be celebrated on June 2, honoring peace, motherhood, and womanhood. In the Boston Mass, she has initiated a Mothers' Peace Day observance on the second Sunday in June. That was to be established as an annual event and practiced for at least 10 years. That day was, however, mainly intended to call to make unite women against war. Due to her efforts in the year of 1873, women in 18 cities of America held a Mother's Day for Pace gathering. Howe rigorously championed the cause of official celebration of Mothers Day and declaration of official holiday on the day. She held meetings every year in Boston on Mother's Peace Day and took care that the day was well-observed. The celebrations have died out when she has turned her efforts to working for peace and women's rights in other ways. Howe was failed in her attempt that to get the formal recognition of a Mother's Day for Peace. Her exceptional contribution for the establishment of Mother's Day, it always remains the fact about she has organized the Mother's Day was dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother's Day in the sense that was to be the precursor to the modern Mother's Day celebrations. To remain Howe's achievements, a stamp was issued in her honor in 1988.
