24 Drawing Ideas for Mother’s Day (with Step by Step Instructions)

Around the world, there are many special occasions that celebrate mothers and motherhood. This custom is not new; days honoring mothers have been observed since ancient times.

For example, the Encyclopædia Britannica describes “a festival derived from the custom of mother worship in ancient Greece.

Formal mother worship, with ceremonies to Cybele, or Rhea, the Great Mother of the Gods, were performed on the Ides of March throughout Asia Minor.”

In its modern history, Mother's Day can be traced to Mothering Sunday, the fourth Sunday in Lent as observed in Britain and other parts of Europe. Originally, celebrants returned to their "mother church," usually in their hometown. Eventually the traditions shifted, and children began to present small gifts to their mothers.

Mother's Day in the United States originated with Anna Jarvis, who created the holiday in 1908.


After her mother's death, she desired "a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children." It became an official holiday in 1914, held on the second Sunday in May.

In other parts of the world, Mother's Day and similar holidays are celebrated at different times of the year.

In Thailand, it is celebrated in August, on the birthday of Queen Sirikit. In Ethiopia, Antrosht, held in August, is a celebration lasting many days. Families sing together and feast.

One thing most celebrations of mothers have in common is the gift of flowers, cards, candy, and the like. Some families give the mother a day off from household chores. The best part is, you don't need lots of money or special skills in order to make someone a special gift. All you need is a pencil and a sheet of paper.
