In America, Mother's Day became an official holiday in 1914. According to the History Channel, it can be "traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele."

Later, a European festival called Mothering Sunday took place on the fourth Sunday during Lent.

Originally a time to return to their home or "mother" church, customs of children giving gifts to their mothers on this day gradually developed.
