  母亲节是一个感谢母亲的节日。在美国、加拿大和一些其他国家,每年5月的第二个星期天就是母亲节。在其他一些国家的日期并不一样(参见世界各国母亲节日期)。母亲们在这一天通常会收到礼物。康乃馨被视为献给母亲的花。

  节日起源于古希腊。在这一天,古希腊人向希腊众神之母赫拉致敬。到古罗马时,这些活动的规模就变得更大,庆祝盛况往往持续达三天之久。当然,古时人们对女神的崇拜只不过是一种迷信,它同今天人们对母性的尊敬是大不相同的。在17世纪中叶,母亲节流传到英国,英国人把封斋期的第四个星期天作为母亲节。在这一天里,出门在外的年青人将回到家中,给他们的母亲带上一些小礼物。

  现代的母亲节起源于美国,由安娜·贾维斯(AnnaJarvis,1864-1948年)发起,她终身未婚,一直陪伴在母亲身边。安娜·贾维斯的母亲心地善良,极富同情心,她提出应设立一个纪念日来纪念默默无闻做出奉献的母亲们,可是这个愿望尚未实现她就逝世了。她的女儿安娜·贾维斯于1907年开始举办活动,申请将母亲节成为一个法定节日。节日于1908年5月10日在美国的西弗吉尼亚和宾夕法尼亚州正式开始。她曾亲自在教堂中安排仪式,组织活动,同时要求前来参加者胸前要佩戴白色的石竹花。这一活动,曾引起了不少人的关注和兴趣。翌年,便有更多的教堂纷纷组织同样的活动。

  1911年,庆祝母亲节的活动已经开展得非常广泛,不仅席卷美利坚合众国的每一个州,而且连加拿大、墨西哥和南美的一些国家也都开始庆祝这个节日。美利坚合众国人还把宣传母亲节的传单用十种不同文字印发到各国去,以便扩大影响。此后几年中,庆祝母亲节运动的热潮有增无已。1912年,美利坚合众国专门成立了母亲节国际协会。1913年5月,美利坚合众国众议院一致通过决议,号召总统以及内阁、参众两院和联邦政府的一切官员一律在母亲节佩戴白色石竹花。1914年,美利坚合众国国会正式命名5月的第二个星期日为母亲节,并要求总统发布宣言,号召政府官员在所有的公共建筑物上悬挂国旗。紧接着,威尔逊总统昭告全国公民也在自己的住宅上挂国旗以表达人们对美利坚合众国全体母亲的热爱和尊敬。此后美利坚合众国总统每年都要发表一篇内容相同的宣言。

  1913年,美国国会确定将每年5月的第二个星期日作为法定的母亲节,并规定这一天家家户户都要悬挂国旗,表达对母亲的尊敬。而安娜·贾维斯的母亲生前最爱的康乃馨也就成了母亲节的象征。

  母亲节故事

  A mother's love never wavers. So there is a special day for her — Mothers' Day. Do you know the story behind it?

  母亲节历史悠久,早在古希腊时代人们就开始庆祝了。

  Nowadays many countries celebrate Mothers' Day, though not all on the same day.

  Mothers' Day in the United States is on the second Sunday in May. Most countries celebrate Mothers' Day as the United States does.

  1907年,美国的安娜•佳维斯呼吁设立母亲节。She wrote to many people about her idea. 在她和她的支持者的努力下,人们都接受了这个提议,并确定五月份的第二个星期天为“国际母亲节”。Mothers often receive carnations on Mothers' Day. 因为安娜的母亲最喜欢康乃馨,所以这种花也就成了节日那天送给妈妈的“专用花”啦。

  今年的母亲节是5月14号。你有没有准备要送给妈妈什么礼物呢?People usually send flowers to their mothers. 送花的时候别忘了做一张贺卡放在旁边,上边要写上祝福的话:

  Dear Mum:

  Please accept my love, today, and every day.

  You're the coolest mum in the world!

  I love you, Mum!

  当然啦,如果你的零用钱不够,你只给妈妈送一张贺卡,妈妈也会很高兴的。If you help your mum do some housework, she will be very, very glad.

  Mothers are great because they bring us into this world. They do a lot for us. 她们永远值得我们去尊敬和爱。其实,每一天我们都可以向妈妈说出我们的爱。Tell your mother you love her. Every day should be Mothers' day.
