The 2nd Sunday in May

The second Sunday in May hosts the second most popular holiday for gift-giving......Mother's Day!

How did Mother's Day start?  Individual mothers did not start out as the focus of Mother's Day.  Several ancient cultures had huge festivals celebrating whichever goddess was their mother-figure and early christians in Europe celebrated the fourth Sunday of Lent by honoring the church where they were babtized (their "mother" church).  Mother's Day as we know it did not come about until 1908 and it has since spread around the world with many countries creating their own versions. 

As mothers across the United States celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday, Wicked Wicker would like to wish them all a wonderful day. 

Happy Mother's Day Mom!!!
