Mother’s Day: origin, date, symbols…
Mothering Sunday was thus born out of a combination of the passage of the milk introit and the visit to the “mother church”. In the UK, 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 all over the world to unite for peace. But it was Anna Jarvis (1864-1948) who is considered responsible for the international version we know today. She founded specific “clubs” for mothers with the same aim of peaceful union.
