However, it should not come as a surprise that the practice of designating a certain day as a holiday has become widespread. On Mother’s Day, we are able to show our mothers our love and thanks by showering them with cards, flowers, and gifts such as motherhood jewelry. We can also let them know how much we appreciate everything that they do for us.

Mother’s Day in Ireland’s Religious Origins
In modern Ireland, Mother’s Day is celebrated as a day to honor all mothers. However, like many other Irish holidays, Mother’s Day has its roots in religious practice. People in Ireland and the United Kingdom used to go to their “mother” church on Mothering Sunday. This may be the church where they were baptized or the nearby cathedral, which served as the “mother church” for all of the parishes. Mothering Sunday was celebrated on the second Sunday in May. The employees celebrate the holiday with their families by traveling back to their hometowns. And as time went on and the holiday saw a renaissance in the 20th century, it evolved into a celebration of families and, in particular, mothers, giving rise to the current holiday that we know as Mother’s Day.
