    Mothers' Day

    Sunday may 12, 2024
    cards/flowers : Mother’s day has evolved in many countries in different ways. This is because mother’s day has different origins in different countries and therefore occurs on different days in the year. One school of thought claims that this day emerged from the custom of mother worship in ancient Greece. Mother worship which kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of gods, and Rhea, the wife of Cronus, was held on March 15 to March 18 around Asia Minor. They insist that this custom spread around the world. Mothering Sunday is the celebration of motherhood in the United Kingdom. It is also known as Mid-lent Sunday, Rose Sunday and Laetare Sunday. It originally comes from the Victorian practice of allowing servants to return home to visit their mothers on this day. In the United States, Julia Ward Howe (May 27, 1819 - October 17, 1910) was a prominent American abolitionist, social activist, and poet. Howe’s Battle Hymn of the Republic was first published in the Atlantic Monthly in 1862 and quickly became one of the most popular songs for the Union during the American Civil War. After the war she focused her activities on the causes of Pacifism and women’s suffrage. In 1870 she was the first to proclaim Mother’s Day, with her Mother’s Day Proclamation. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson approved Mother’s Day in 1914

    Secular holiday : The Ten Years War began on 10 October 1868 under the leadership of the attorney Carlos Manuel de Cespedes and seconded by a group of patriots in the sugar mill La Demajagua, calling for liberty and independence of the island. Cespedes attacked the small town of Yara on October 11, from which this revolution took its name. The 10 October date is commemorated as a national holiday under the name Grito de Yara ( Shout of Yara ). The Ten-Years War (Guerra de los Diez Anos), was the first of three wars that Cuba fought against Spain, it lasted from 1868 to 1878, the other two being The Small War (La Guerra Chiquita, 1879-1880) and the Cuban War of Independence (1895-1898). The final 3 months of the last conflict escalated to become the Spanish-American War. [Wikipedia]
