WebNews #6 Mother's Day Sunday May 8, 2005
Music: "Mother"

Ancient Celebrations of Mothers and Motherhood: People in many ancient cultures celebrated holidays honoring motherhood, personified as a goddess. Here are just a few of those: (1) ancient Greeks celebrated a holiday in honor of Rhea, the mother of the gods; (2) ancient Romans celebrated a holiday in honor of Cybele, a mother goddess, March 22-25 - the celebrations were notorious enough that followers of Cybele were banished from Rome; (3) in the British Isles and Celtic Europe, the goddess Brigid, and later her successor St. Brigid, were honored with a spring Mother's Day, connected with the first milk of the ewes.
