The History of Mother’s Day and The Importance of the Carnation

The origins of Mother’s Day can often be thought to be traced back in time to many ancient rites, which had symbolic and spiritual origins, such as many Goddesses and symbols of motherhood that were celebrated. Mother’s Day is a celebration that honours motherhood, mothers, maternal bonds and the influence that Mothers have had on society. It is an American invention and it is not directly related to the many celebrations that have occurred throughout the world over the past thousands of years. May 10, 1908 was the first official Mother’s Day celebration that took place in West Virginia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. White carnations were given out to every Mother that was in attendance at the celebration in Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.   Today white carnations are still very important as they are used to honour Mothers that are deceased. Pink and red carnations are used to pay tribute to Moms that are still living. In 1914, the second Sunday in May was signed into being the day of national observance, in which the second Sunday in May was declared as Mother’s Day. From this date on, this holiday flourished in the United States. Flowers became a very important part of the celebration especially the white carnations.
