History of Mother’s Day
On Sunday many Australians will spend the day celebrating their mother’s and other special women in their lives.
Some mums may be given cards, flowers and gifts, while others may enjoy breakfast in bed or a lunch out.
Mothers Day has long been a part of the Australian calendar, but where did the idea to dedicate the second Sunday in May to honouring motherhood come from?
The modern Australian celebration of Mother’s Day actually grew out of calls for peace and anti-war campaigns following the American Civil War (1861-65).
In 1870, American writer and women’s rights activist Julia Ward Howe, best known as the author of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, appealed to women to unite and bring peace throughout the world (later known as the Mother’s Day Proclamation).
She proposed that a mothers day for peace be commemorated every year in June.
But the idea of a mother’s day did not gain traction until 1908, when West Virginia woman Anna Marie Jarvis held a church memorial to honour the legacy of her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis. – read more on the history of Mother’s Day.
