About Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is a time to honour motherhood and show our appreciation to mums of all kinds, including wives, sisters and grandmas, for all their hard work and sacrifice. A special day to shower mothers with gifts such as flowers, jewellery and many more on this special day.
History of Mother’s Day
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as ‘Mothering Sunday’. Over time, the Mothering Sunday tradition shifted into a more secular holiday and children would present their mothers with flowers and other gifts to show appreciation.
When Was Mother’s Day Founded?
The official Mother’s Day holiday arose in the 1900s as a result of the efforts of Anna Jarvis, the daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis. Following her mother’s death in 1905, Anna Jarvis conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honouring the sacrifices mothers made for their children. In May 1908, she organized the first official Mother’s Day celebration at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia.
Colour Carnations for Mother’s Day
When it comes to flowers for Mother’s Day, each colour carnation defines a meaning. The different colours for Mother’s Day are pink, white and red. So what does each one mean?
Pink Carnations represent gratitude and love. Pink Carnations are the most significant flowers for Mother’s Day as it is believed that they first bloomed where the tears of the Virgin Mary fell, turning them into a symbol of a mother’s undying love.
White Carnations say ‘I love you and I miss your presence’. White Carnations are traditional flowers to give or wear in remembrance of a mother who is no longer living. White carnations are now also worn by people whose mothers live a long distance away in different countries or cities.
Light Red Carnations signify admiration and adoration. Dark Red Carnations enunciate love and affection. Red Carnations are a symbol of deep love and life, making them the best flowers to send when you want to honour your partner, spouse or the special lady in your life on Mother’s Day. Light Red Carnations evoke admiration while Dark Red Carnations imply love and affection.
