The tradition of giving flowers dates back to the Ancient Age, specifically to Egyptian culture.

In Greek mythology, there was the goddess Rhea and in Rome and in Asia the goddess Cibeles, who were the ones who represented this role.

However, although the mother figure was honored, the flowers did not begin to take center stage until the seventeenth century. Period in which every fourth Sunday of Lent was dedicated to the figure of the Virgin and offerings were made in the church as a way of respect and gratitude to be his son.

Mother’s Day would be a tradition later taken to the American lands through the colonizers. At that time Mother’s Day was celebrated on December 8 for being the day of the Immaculate Conception, although later it would be passed on the first Sunday in May for both Christian reasons and for being the month of the Virgin par excellence and the month in the one that the spring brought its first flowers, when the nature is fresher and renewed.

And the spring symbolizes life, just as our mothers gave us life after taking us for several months in their womb. So, giving flowers on Mother’s Day is a beautiful tradition that shows the purest and most eternal love to that person who has given us life.
