The Meaning of Mother’s Day
The celebration of Mother’s Day can be traced all the way back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans. They would hold festivals for the ‘Mother Goddesses’ Rhea and Cybele which later sparked the Christian holiday known as ‘Mothering Sunday’. People would flock to their ‘Mother Church’ – the closest church in the vicinity of their homes – for a special service commemorating Motherhood. This celebration faded in popularity until it was reintroduced in the 1930’s to merge with America’s Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day has a long history and has evolved into the celebration we commemorate today. Our modern idea of Mother’s Day is to show gratitude and appreciation for the challenges of Motherhood. It is my belief that this special day is celebrated by families to give back to our Mums for all the support and guidance they have shown us.
Mother’s Day is a beautiful day spent with family or friends to dedicate our appreciation for our Mother’s, Nan’s, Nonna’s, Grandma’s, Auntie’s and every woman who is close to our own heart. On the 12th of May sons and daughters show their gratitude in many ways such as gifts, phone calls, cards filled with kind words or time spent together.
For this Mother’s Day we have created two beautiful personalised keepsake boxes to celebrate and show our appreciation for everything our Mother’s do for us.
To me personally Mother’s Day is a special day where I like to show how much I appreciate my Mum by doing things she wants to do. Every Mother’s Day I always organise a thoughtful gift as well as something she loves to receive every year for example, a candle. There is a difference between a meaningful gift that will last and a meaningful gift that deteriorates. Not only are our Mother’s Day keepsake boxes a beautiful, meaningful and long lasting gift but the keepsake boxes can also be used to store sentimental items, like Mother’s Day cards, hand written notes and letters.
Mother’s Day is a day dedicated to showing gratitude, and here at The Lovebox Co we encourage every day and every moment as a time to send a special message to the ones we love.
