The Birth of Mother's Day

People have been celebrating the beauty and honor of mothers since the beginning of time. Ancient Egyptians had a special celebration in honor of the mother figure, the goddess Isis. The ancient Romans celebrated the Phygian goddess Cybele, also called the Great Mother. The Greeks honored mothers by celebrating the mother figure Rhea, known as the mother of Zeus.

It was in the 1600’s that a clerical group in England devoted a day to actual mothers. It was called Mothering Day. The tradition of the day crossed the ocean to America with the settlers, but then died out very rapidly. It was not until centuries later that America would develop their own Mother’s Day.

In 1870, Julia Ward Howe, who had written the Battle Hymn of the Republic, proclaimed the first North American Mother’s Day. She was troubled by the devastation brought about by the Civil War, and called for mothers to come together to bring peace. Eventually, she even suggested that her Mother’s Day be celebrated on July 4th. The holiday lasted only as long as Howe was funding it.

Anne Reese Jarvis took up the idea after that. In 1908, Jarvis died, and her grieving daughter asked her church for a celebration of Mother’s Day once again. The commemoration took place in two churches, and it was during those services that the tradition of the carnations was developed. Howe’s daughter arranged for each daughter to be given two carnations. As time went by, the tradition developed so that daughters with living mothers got pink or red carnations and the daughters with deceased mothers got white carnations.
In that same year, 1908, a Senator proposed a national holiday for Mother’s Day. Jarvis’s daughter quit her daily job and started spending all her time working to get the Mother’s Day legislation passed. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson finally signed Mother’s Day into law.

From that point until today, Mother’s Day has only grown and flourished.  Held on the second Sunday in May, Mother’s Day is now celebrated with cards, flowers, gifts and family celebrations. It has become a day to remember lost mothers and to cherish the living ones. It has also been associated with peace and caring.
Mothers deserve the very best on their special day. They deserve to be amazed and delighted. Nothing can produce the same dazzling effect as a Corky Kouture gift presentation bag. Giving one of these gift bags will show Mother just how special she is.

With the frilly, shiny, beautiful appearance of the upscale bottled presentation bag, Mother will know she is about to receive something very special. Imagine her happiness when she opens the bag and finds an excellent gift of champagne, wine or sparkling juice to celebrate her day. These are gifts that most people do not think to shower on a mother.

Warm a mother’s heart even more by including a personal note expressing gratitude and love. Just place it in the attached bejeweled pouch for a pleasant surprise. Think about how much Mother means to you and make it one of the happiest Mother’s Days ever.
