These vegan Mother’s Day recipes will help you honor all sorts of motherhood and are kind, healthy, and delicious.
In more ancient times, we honored and even worshipped mother goddesses like Cybele, Freya, Isis, Juno, Yemaya, Brighid, Mary, Rhea, and Asasa Ya.
Mother’s Day in the US
Mother’s Day is fairly new in the US. Anna Marie Jarvis created the American holiday in 1908, with financial backing from department store owner John Wanamaker and in cooperation with the floral industry, and it was adopted as an official holiday in 1914. Jarvis later denounced the holiday she created, disappointed in how commercialized it had become. Because of that, she spent her later life trying to get Mother’s Day removed as an official holiday.
Less well remembered is Julia Ward Howe, abolitionist and suffragette, who in 1870 wrote the “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” which encouraged mothers to unite for world peace.
