The tv media are talking about this today... in U K anyway.
As a Witness , my Mum never expected or received any recognition on that day . Now, on the outside it seems very harsh and nit-picking.
Their thinking is explained by this quote from the "Reasoning" book.
" What is the origin of the practice of setting aside a day to honor mothers?
The Encyclopædia Britannica says: “A festival derived from the custom of mother worship in ancient Greece. Formal mother worship, with ceremonies to Cybele, or Rhea, the Great Mother of the Gods, were performed on the Ides of March throughout Asia Minor.”—(1959), Vol. 15, p. 849"
Who today has heard of Cybele or Rhea? Precious few and I guarantee that nobody sets out to honour them by treating their Mother today.
I accept that it is somewhat commercial today, but it brings a lot of harmless pleasure to families and sadness to unbelieving Mums of Witnesses.
