Background

Early Mother's Day celebrations can be dated back to the spring celebrations to honor Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, in ancient Greek civilization, according to some sources. The modern-day origins of Mother's Day can be attributed to two women in the United States – Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis – who organized Mother’s Day activities during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Mother’s Day has grown into a global event celebrated in many countries including Ukraine.
