Significance and Celebration of Mom’s Day Around the World
The celebration of Mum’s Day is not a recent phenomenon and has been practised by various countries around the world in different ways. The tradition goes back a long time and has evolved a lot since then in terms of the celebrations. Here is a step by step guide about how different countries celebrate this special occasion since the time of its origin in Greek and Roman cultures.
Greece- The ancient Greeks were very much dedicated to their Maternal Goddesses during the time of annual spring festival. As per the Greek mythology, they used to celebrate the occasion in the honour of “Rhea” who was believed to be the wife of Cronus and the Mother of various deities.
Rome- The present celebration in Rome dates back to the time when the ancient Roman people used to celebrate the spring festival known as “Hilaria” in the honour of “Cybele”, the Mother Goddess. People at that time used to make offerings towards Mother Goddess Cybele in the temple. The entire celebrations were meant for three days along with varieties of activities such as games, parades and masquerades.
England- In various countries with the higher population of Catholic Christians, the day is associated with the commemoration and worship of Virgin Mary or the Mother of Jesus Christ. It is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent since the time of the 1600s. Christians used to provide gifts, flowers and tribute to celebrate the day of Mothering Sunday which became synonymous with the celebration of Motherhood.
USA- The present celebration of Mother’s Day on the Second Sunday of May in US and other countries has been adopted by the efforts of Anna Jarvis who pioneered the cause of celebrating the Mom’s Day in the memory of all the Mothers in the world. Her efforts marked the celebration of the occasion in US and other parts of the world. Soon after, the day began to be celebrated with gifts, greeting cards and sending carnations as a traditional flower on the occasion. This practice was later quickly adopted by several other countries.
India- Although, the present celebration in the honour of Mothers in India is celebrated every year on Second Sunday of May but the tradition to celebrate Mother’s Day is centuries old. In countries with Hindu population like India and Nepal, the occasion was earlier known as “Mata Tirtha Aunshi” or “Mother Pilgrimage fortnight” as a tribute to Mothers. The occasion is celebrated on the new moon day of the Baisakh month which is the month of April or May.
Arab countries- Although, there is no official concept related to the celebration of Motherhood in Islam but the religion holds the significance of “Ammi” or the Mother to the highest regard. With time, various Muslim countries adopted the celebration of Mum’s Day on 21st March. However, there are various Islamic countries like Bangladesh, Malaysia, Turkey, Pakistan and others that celebrate the day to honour Mothers based on the US date of Second Sunday of May.
