• Chinese family names are often formed (begin) with a sign that means “mother”. It’s a nice way of honoring their moms long past. 

• The ancient Greeks celebrated Mother’s Day in spring, like we do. They used to honor Rhea, “mother of the gods” with honey-cakes and fine drinks and flowers at dawn. Sounds like the beginnings of the Mother’s Day tradition of breakfast in bed! 

• Mother Shipton was a Prophetess in Britain 500 years ago. She could see the future, and predicted that another Queen Elizabeth would sit on the throne of England. (QE II) 

• Japan’s Imperial family trace their descent from Omikami Amaterasu, the Mother of the World. 

• Julia Ward Howe wrote the Battle Hymm of the Republic and was a staunch fighter for women’s rights. She staged an unusual protest for peace in Boston, by celebrating a special day for mothers. Julia wanted to call attention to the need for peace by pointing out mothers who were left alone in the world without their sons and husbands after the bloody Franco-Prussian War. 

• Hindu scripture credits the Great Mother, Kali Ma, with the invention of writing through alphabets, pictographs and beautiful sacred images. 

• Mother Goose is one of the most popular of all children’s entertainers. Her books and stories have been loved for many generations. Check back tomorrow for more Mother’s Day the World Over.
