Mother's Day in the Greco-Roman civilizationMother's Day is a long-held tradition, dating back to ancient times. Indeed, the Romans, like the Greeks, used to also pay tribute to their mother, especially during ceremonies taking place in the spring to celebrate two goddesses, considered as the mothers of the gods: Rhea, for the Greeks, and Cybele for the Romans! But little by little, with the decline of these two civilisations, tradition was lost before being reborn centuries later.
Napoléon and the French Republic pay tribute to all mothersWe owe the rebirth of this lovely tradition to Napoléon. Indeed, he decided in Spring 1806 to create an official holiday honouring mother. However, the Empire ended before its official introduction in the calendar. But in 1926, the Republic celebrates the first national day of mothers of large families, organising medal ceremonies. The date of the last Sunday of May, excluding Ascension, was finally settled in 1950.
