In the eyes of every mother beetle, her little one is a gazelle.
The first traces of this celebration go back to Ancient Greece. Indeed, the first to have established a day dedicated to mothers are the Greeks and Romans who organized each year in spring a ceremony in honor of Rhea and Cybele, the mother deities of the Gods. Rhea is notably known for being the mother of Zeus and Poseidon, a deity related to motherhood.
Later, in the Middle Ages, it is possible that the first Christians venerated the Virgin Mary by assimilating the cults of these pagan goddesses. In this very Christian era, it was traditional to dedicate spring and especially the month of May to Mary, the mother of Jesus.
In the 15th century, the English celebrated Mothering Sunday, first at the beginning of Lent and then on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
In 1907, the United States developed the modern Mother's Day as it is celebrated today, by introducing Mother's Day, in memory of the mother of schoolteacher Anna Jarvis. On May 12, 1907, two years after her mother's death, she launched a campaign to establish Mother's Day as an official holiday. Her action bore fruit in 1914 when the text was approved by the American government. Every year since then, the second Sunday in May has been a holiday in the United States.
In Europe, the origin of Mother's Day as we know it today can be associated with the Second World War. Indeed, when American troops arrived in France in April 1917, the tradition of Mother's Day was established in the French culture. In addition, a "Mother's Day" was established in some cities following the war to pay tribute to women who had lost children during the fighting. Later, when the time came to repopulate France, a "day for mothers of large families" was established to encourage women to have more children.

The mother is a deity, the father a treasure.
