4、 The origin of international mother's Day
The tradition of mother's Day originated in ancient Greece. On January 8, the ancient Greeks paid homage to Rhea, the mother of the Greek gods. In ancient Rome, the scale of these activities became larger, and the celebrations often lasted for three days. Of course, people's worship of goddess in ancient times was just a superstition, which is quite different from people's respect for motherhood today.
In the middle of the 17th century, mother's day spread to England. The English people took the fourth Sunday of Lent as mother's day. On this day, young people who go out will come home and bring some small gifts to their mother.
In 1876, the United States was still mourning the dead of the civil war. Anna Jarvis, who was lecturing on Memorial Day in the chapel, prayed after telling the story of the heroes who died in the battle: "I hope someone will create a mother's day somewhere, sometime, to commemorate and praise mothers in the United States and all over the world. '
Mrs. Chavez has served her chapel for more than 25 years. When she died at the age of 72, her 41 year old daughter Anna decided to create a mother's day to fulfill her mother's wish many years ago. Anna wrote letters to many famous people, asking them to support the establishment of mother's day in order to carry forward filial piety. At the beginning, she reacted coldly, but she was not discouraged and continued to appeal to all walks of life. On May 12, 1907, Andre Methodist Church held a service for mothers at Anna's invitation. The next year, the ceremony was held in Philadelphia with a warm response, and finally won the support of the governor of Victoria, who announced the establishment of mother's day in the state in 1910. In 1911, the celebration of mother's day has been very extensive, not only sweeping every state of the United States of America, but also Canada, Mexico and some countries in South America began to celebrate the festival. The people of the United States of America have also printed and distributed mother's Day leaflets in ten different languages in order to expand their influence. In the following years, the upsurge of celebrating mother's day continued unabated. In 1912, the United States of America established the International Association for mother's day.
In May 1913, the house of representatives of the United States of America unanimously passed a resolution calling on the president and all officials of the cabinet, the house of Representatives and the federal government to wear white carnations on Mother's day. In 1914, the United States Congress officially named the second Sunday of may as mother's day, and asked the president to issue a declaration calling on government officials to fly the national flag on all public buildings. Then, President Wilson announced that all citizens of the country would also fly the national flag on their houses to express people's love and respect for all mothers of the United States of America. Since then, the president of the United States of America has issued a declaration with the same content every year. Since then, mother's day has been held in various countries.
