British Mother’s Day/

Roman Deorum Matronalia

Romans usually waited to wed until the latter half of June, the month of Juno. Thus by 1 March a new bride would likely be in the tenth moon of her first pregnancy and expected to deliver any day. The Goddess of Marriage, the Goddess of Birthing, the birthday of Mars, and the New Year, all came together around a time when a family would celebrate the birth of their first child.

The custom therefore arose for husbands to shower their wives with gifts on Matronalia. Dainties and sweets, flowers and jewelry were given to celebrate a wife as mother to the family’s children. The children would join in with gifts of their own for their mother. And soon enough lovers began to give gifts on the first of the year as well. For modern cultures Deorum Matronalia thus becomes a sort of Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, as well as a celebration of wives. And we bear in mind, too, that as this is the first of the year, the harmony and joy of family felt this day is kept throughout the New Year.
