Mother's Day: origin, date, symbols….

This maternity Sunday was therefore born from a mixture between the passage of the introit on milk and the visit to the “mother church”. Moreover, in the United Kingdom, Mother's Day has long been called Mothering Sunday, in reference to this religious ceremony. 

In the United States, the activist Julia Ward Howe initiated the Mother's Day Proclamation in 1870, inviting mothers around the world to unite to achieve peace. But it is above all Anna Jarvis (1864-1948) who is considered responsible for the international version we know today. She actually founded “clubs” specific to mothers, with the same goal of peaceful union.
