THE GODDESS CELEBRATION

THE GODDESS CELEBRATION
Being a mother and having a mother are most precious and have been duly celebrated since the dawn of the mythological goddess. Before this Mother’s Day 26TH March we take a look at the history of the celebration and we highlight our top favourite gifts to say thank you to the mother in your life.

THE GODDESS ORIGIN
Like many celebrations Mother’s Day began as a religious ceremony held on the 4th Sunday after lent. The original day, in honour of the Virgin Mary or holy mother came from both catholic and protestant churches and dates back to the 16th century. Families returned from near and far to their “Mother” church and the occasion gave them a chance to be with their families and visit their own mothers. However, the earliest celebration dates back to the ancient annual spring festival of the Greeks, dedicated to honor Rhea, wife of Cronus and the mother of many mythological deities. The Romans celebrated a spring festival dedicated to Cybele, a mother goddess. .

HOW WE SEE IT
The custom began to fade in the early part of the 20th century but by world war II American soldiers feeling a need to be close to their mothers revived the celebration of Mothering Sunday as we know it today. In our clinic, we see this Mother’s Day as one for all mothers, past and present, a precious opportunity to honour them with gratitude.
