Before we share our great craft ideas, you might want to hear about the origin of mothers day. You can share the interesting story as you craft with mom. The origin of mothers day stretches as far back as the ancient Greeks who held an annual spring festival honoring Rhea, great mother of the gods. Early Christians celebrated Mary, mother of Jesus Christ, during the Mother’s Festival on the 4th Sunday of Lent. In the 16th century, Christian sects in England expanded “Mothering Sunday” to include a celebration of all mothers. Now, mothers day falls on a different date in most of Europe than in America.
The origin of mothers day as a nationally- recognized secular celebration can be credited to one woman, Anna Jarvis. After the death of her mother, Anna organized a memorial service for her as a mothers day observance and began campaigning for a national mothers day. She succeeded and in 1914 Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a national holiday for mothers. Later in her life, Anna campaigned against the commercialization of mothers day and the tradition of sending store-bought greeting cards and/or candy. She felt that people were not truly making the effort to honor their mothers. By doing arts and crafts for mothers day, you will actually be honoring the wishes of the founder.
