Cartes/Fleurs : 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.
Jour de Noël -
Dimanche 25 Décembre 2016
Catholique ou protestante : Depuis la préhistoire, les civilisations européennes ont célébré l'allongement des journées, y associant des rituels de cadeaux et des feux de joie. Dans l'empire romain, la fête de Saturnalia s'étendait sur plusieurs jours (fêtes, jeux de hasard). De même, les tribus germaniques y associaient des fêtes et des beuveries. Les Bulgares (avec Koleduvane) et les Polonais (avec Gwiazdka) perpétuent cette tradition. Il semble que Jésus de Nazareth soit né au printemps. Pourtant, le pape Jules 1er (4è siècle) avança cet anniversaire au 25 décembre pour concurrencer les célébrations païennes hivernales.
