traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient
Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods.
During the 1600's, England celebrated a day
called "Mothering Sunday". During
this time many of the England's poor worked
as servants for the wealthy. As most jobs were
located far from their homes, the servants would
live at the houses of their employers. On Mothering
Sunday the servants would have the day off and
were encouraged to return home and spend the
day with their mothers. A special cake, called
the mothering cake, was often brought along
to provide a festive touch.

own Mother's Day at different times throughout
the year, there are some countries such as Denmark,
Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia and Belgium
which celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday
