The story of Mother’s Day is a long one. It is neither a recent phenomenon as many people believe it to be, nor is it the creation of card and gift marketers syndicate as assumed by cynics of Mother’s Day. To the surprise of many
people, Mother’s Day celebrations are first said to have taken place in the time of ancient Greeks and Romans, hundreds of years ago. Even Mother’s Day celebrations in the UK began much before the tradition saw the light of day in the United States.
