The origins of Mother’s Day dates back to the era of the ancient Greek and Romans but its roots can also be traced back to the UK where a Mothering Sunday was highly celebrated much before the festival saw the light of the day in USA. The celebration of the day as it is seen today however, is quite a recent tradition as it is not even a hundred years old.
