The day is celebrated in many different ways and also on different days around the world - most countries celebrate the day between March and May. Celebrations relating to motherhood can be traced back to the Greek cult to Cybele or in Roman times the festival for Hilaria - however the way this day is celebrated is not connected to the ancient times.
Julia War Howe wrote the "Mother's Day Proclamation" in 1870, as a pacifist counterpart to the carnage of the American Civil war and the Franco-Prussian War. Howe's being a feminist stated that women had the responsibility to support and help shaping the society also on a political level.
Years after, Ann Jarvis founded 5 Mothers Day Work Clubs to help with the improvisation of sanitary and health conditions. Two years after she died her daughter Anna Jarvis started a campaign to make Mother's Day recognized as a holiday in the United States in memory of her mother. She was finally successful 7 years later in 1914.

Mother's Day was invented in America and of course has been designated as a national holiday. Mother's Day was first getting organised in 1868 by a lady called Anne Jarvis. Mother's Day was first called “Mother's Friendship Day” which was organised for the purpose of Mother's whom had lost their sons during the American civil war so they had some way of getting together to commemorate their loss.
The origin has been emulated by the modern world from ancient celebrations of Greece, Rome and Christian Mothering Sunday but in actual fact; not descended from there, but from the outcome of the American Civil War (1861 to 1865) as stated above.
Christian Mothering Sunday
Is a Christian holiday celebrated in the UK (Mar 10 2013) in the Same way as Mother's Day in the US and around the world first established in Europe in the period of lent (which lands on the 4th Sunday of Lent each year) and derived from this Christian annual season of penitence and fasting. Taken part in by Roman Catholic, Anglican and other Churches for 46 days (starting on Ash Wednesday) and for the duration leading up to the day before Easter.
The Roman Catholic Church celebrates all Mother's this time of year but also for a large part devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary. All around Italy you will see shrines dedicated to the Virgin Mary, in the homes of Catholics, even on the roadside with candles lit in her honour.
In Greek Orthodoxy the title given to Mary, Mother of Jesus is Theotokos; also in the Eastern Orthodox Church (which is the second largest to the Roman Catholic) pracised mainly in Eastern Europe and stretching out to the Arab world in the middle-East and as far as Syria which also worship Theotokos (Virgin Mary) on Christian Mothering Sunday.
