Happy Mother’s Day!

Hearts On Fire

Mother’s Day is a widely honored celebration of mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds and the maternal influence in society. It is celebrated on different days in many parts of the world; but commonly in the spring months of March, April, or May. In North America, Mother’s Day is on the second Sunday of May, which falls on the 13th this year.

Many believe the tradition originated from the era of the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held an annual spring festivals dedicated to maternal goddesses. However, it can also be traced back to the U.K. tradition of a Mothering Sunday in the 1600’s. Mothering Sundays were celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter) to honor mothers.

A common tradition on Mother’s Day is to give flowers and gifts. Jewelry is a top favorite; most women love jewelry!
