Mother’s Day is certainly a large holiday as far as marketing is concerned but, believe it or not, it was not invented by retailers. In fact, Mother’s Day celebrations have been going on in one form or another, for a very long time. One of the earliest celebrations (that we know of) was the annual spring festival in ancient Greece that was dedicated to Rhea, mother to many deities. The ancient Romans had a holiday that was dedicated to Juno during which mothers usually received gifts. Europe has had a number of long standing traditions where a specific Sunday was set aside to honor mothers such as Mothering Sunday.
