Funny Mothers Day verses 2017

How did Mother’s Day begin?

The origins of Mother’s Day date back to the ancient Greek times, but the way in which we celebrate it today began in America in the early 20th Century.
The ancient Greeks dedicated an annual spring festival to maternal goddesses, and ancient Romans also celebrated a spring festival called Hilaria which was for a mother goddess called Cybele.
More recent origins of Mothering Sunday date back to the 1600s in England when it was held on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
It was originally a day for Christians to visit their ‘mother church’. Servants were given the day off the return to their hometown and worship with their families. Returning home, young people would pick wild flowers to place in the church, or to give to mums. This is why we often given flowers today.
By 1911, Mother’s Day was celebrated in almost every US state and on May 8, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a joint resolution document that confirmed every second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
Nowadays the day has moved away from its religious meaning and is mostly just a day to show our mum’s – or maternal figures in our life – that we appreciate them.
