Mothers' Day 2017

How will you honor your mother this year? 

Will you give her flowers, or chocolate, a greeting card or letter or poem perhaps? Will you honor her with a beautiful dinner celebration? Or, perhaps with a present for her to enjoy as a token of appreciation.

Mother's Day is a time to honor mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers for their contribution to our lives. It is an opportunity to remember and show gratitude for how much we once relied on our mothers caring for us and teaching us how to live and prosper.

Mothers’ Day is celebrated in more than 46 countries throughout the world dating back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. Today the meaning of the holiday, its traditions and celebrations are a rich study that varies by country and religious beliefs.

In the U.S., the modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died.

Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War and created Mother's Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers, because she believed that they were "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world".

Although Mothers’ Day has become the most commercialized holiday for dining out and jewelry sales, it remains a worthy tribute to our beloved matriarchs.

In celebration of Mother’s Day 2017 Garden of Eve reminds us of the joy of self-pampering with pure wholesome skin care.
