Mother's Day a little history
The 'paternity' of Mother's Day has a distant origin that dates back to antiquity, and when we go back to this history, we realize that each country has more or less taken over this celebration to accommodate it and make it their own. Thus in France the village of Artas, located in the department of Isère, boasts of having the first celebration of the mothers, in France, by having on June 10, 1906 put at the honor 2 mothers of numerous families which had each 9 children.
This celebration of motherhood is also a rite that celebrates women in spring for their gift of procreation. Greek mythology also glorifies the mother of Zeus, Cybele, in spring.
In 1907 in the United States, Anna Marie Jarvis, from a very large family, decided to honor mothers and through them her mother, who had died 2 years earlier. Her mother, a feminist before her time, had worked hard so that women could have the means to raise a family in peace by helping many mothers in order to combat the infant mortality rate at the time, by creating a women's club within her church to help the less fortunate. In 1907, on the initiative of Anna Marie Jarvis, Mother's Day was born to honor the strength and hard work of all the mothers to whom humanity owes so much. Seven years later, in 1914, the American President Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday.
Mother's Day is celebrated on different dates depending on the country, thus the United States celebrates it on the 2nd Sunday of May, while in France Mother's Day is celebrated on the last Sunday of May, and exceptionally on the first Sunday of June when Pentecost falls on the same date.
For those who still have this misconception in mind, Marshal Pétain is not the instigator of Mother's Day in France. He just, in 1942, declared the value of women, and mothers in particular, in order to boost the birth rate in France, which was at its lowest.
This year we will celebrate mothers on Sunday, May 29, 2022, so get ready!
