Calendar Days: Mother's Day History

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

Calendar Days: Mother's Day History Commemorating the importance of mothers to society is a relatively recent trend: in the United Kingdom, Mothering Sunday originated more as a religious celebration during Lent. Children came to honor their mothers on this day, by visiting them and sometimes baking a simnel cake. This influenced American Mother’s Day. First, a day uniting women against war gained steam, and by the early twentieth century, individual states began adopting official Mother’s Days. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the history and origins of Mother’s Day. Be sure to check out the site for some great recipe and gift ideas to make your mom feel special this year!
