The priests of Cybele
do not so rattle their sounding brass.
The handles of the litter were supported by four men, who were from time to time relieved by fresh relays, -- even as the bearers of Mother Cybele

The events related to mothers and motherhood can be traced back to ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele
, but the modern precedent for Mother's Day is the early Christian festival known as "Mothering Sunday" .
The earliest celebration of Mothers Day dates back to the annual spring festival that the Greeks dedicated to Rhea, the mother of many deities, and to the offerings that ancient Romans made to Cybele
, their Great Mother of Gods.
