母亲节(Mother's Day),是一个感谢母亲的节日。这个节日最早出现在古希腊;而现代的母亲节起源于美国,是每年5月的第二个星期日。母亲们在这一天通常会收到礼物,康乃馨被视为献给母亲的花,而中国的母亲花是萱草花,又叫忘忧草。

节日起源于古希腊。在这一天,古希腊人向希腊众神之母希布莉(Cybele,宙斯、波塞冬、哈德斯、得墨忒耳、赫拉和赫斯提亚的母亲,故称众神之母)致敬。到古罗马时,这些活动的规模就变得更大,庆祝盛况往往持续达三天之久。当然,古时人们对女神的崇拜只不过是一种迷信,它同人们对母性的尊敬是大不相同的。

在17世纪中叶,母亲节流传到英国,英国人把封斋期的第四个星期天作为母亲节。在这一天里,出门在外的年轻人将回到家中,给他们的母亲带上一些小礼物。   

1876年,美国还在悲悼南北战争的死者。安娜·查维斯夫人(Anna Jarvis) 在礼拜堂讲授美国国殇纪念日的课程,讲到战役中捐躯的英雄故事后,她进行祈祷时说:“但愿在某处、某时,会有人创立一个母亲节,纪念和赞扬美国与全世界的母亲。”   

查维斯夫人为她的礼拜堂服务超过25年,当她在72岁逝世时,41 岁的女儿安娜,立志创立一个母亲节,来实现母亲多年前祈求的心愿。安娜先后写信给许多有名望的人物,要求他们支持设立母亲节,以发扬孝道,初时反应冷淡,但她不气馁,继续向各界呼吁。


Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father's Day and Siblings Day.

In the United States, celebration of Mother's Day began in the early 20th century. It is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood). However, in some countries, Mother's Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.
