Mother's Day Pendant Chain: 9ct Curb 0 18"

Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother's Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. She campaigned to make "Mother's Day" a recognised holiday in the United States began in 1905. Later the UK adopted the same holiday.
