Happy Mother's Day (Every Day)!
We don’t know about you, but here at Rainbow Socks, we think it’s Mother’s Day every day. But what is Mother’s Day all about, and when is it celebrated?
Fortunately, while the holiday’s dates vary between countries, there are plenty of occasions to celebrate. Whether it’s the 8th of March in Russia, one of the Lent Sundays in the UK, the second Sunday of May in the U.S., 26th of May in Poland, or 22nd of December in Indonesia. And while the dates and customs may vary slightly around the world, they stem from the same source of ancient appreciation of motherhood.
Traditional celebrations date back thousands of years. From the Greek goddesses, Rhea and Cybele, then came the early Christian “Mothering Sunday” celebrations. The more recent Mother’s Day was started by Anna Jarvis in 1907 in the U.S., and this morphed into the contemporary global, Mother’s Day celebrations, both heartfelt and commercial.
In its current form, the holiday calls for a gift that expresses our gratitude for, and appreciation of the love, strength and support mums embody. Whether you are going to surprise her with a handmade card, flowers, have a lovely sofa natter or going to get her a gift to remember, Mother Day’s ideas are infinite and that’s why sometimes it’s difficult to make up your mind.
