The genesis of Mother’s Day occurred in ancient times with Greek and Roman festivals dedicated to mother goddesses. In the Christian church, the fourth Sunday in Lent – or Mothering Sunday – was traditionally a day when daughters working in domestic service were permitted to visit their mothers. By 1914, Mother’s Day was officially proclaimed in America, thanks largely to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, who a few years earlier had persuaded a local church to hold a service in honour of her own mother. The custom of giving a small gift or token of appreciation to mothers on their special day is popular all over the world. Like America, Australia and many other nations celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May.
