This year in Canada this celebrated event honors all Mothers on Apr 14, 2017. Rightly so, after all, we all have mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds and love are all universal.
In North America, the celebration of Mother’s Day began in the early 20th century. A sort of latecomer, it is not related to the various celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have transpired throughout the world spanning the time of thousands of years. Some of these were: the Roman Festival of Hilaria, Greek cult to Cybele, or the Christian Mothering Sunday Celebration (originally it had commemorated the Mother Church). Nevertheless Mother’s Day shares the intent of these older traditions.
