MAMA, 妈妈; LOVE U 爱您


最早是的母亲节是由古希腊人,为了荣耀希腊诸神之母—— Rhea 而开始的节庆。

后关于母亲节的最早记载是在美国1872年,由莱利亚(Julia Ward Howe及The Battle Hymn Of The Republic的作者)所提出的。再由费城的安娜(Ana Juruif)在1907年说服了母亲所属的教会,在她母亲二周年忌日——五月的第二个星期天举办母亲节庆祝活动。
十七世纪英格兰,为表达对英国母亲们的敬意,乃订四旬斋的第四个星期日为「Mothering Sunday」,人们在这一天回家探视双亲,并致礼表示敬意。全世界多数国家,都在五月的第二个星期日庆祝母亲节。

When we celebrating Mother's Day tomorrow with our mothers, let's trace back how Mother's Day come by.

Mother's Day is a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood, it is celebrated in many parts of the world, trace back to ancient festivals.However, the modern holiday is an American invention.
