Passion for Spices Team wishes you a Happy Mothers Day. Mothers Day is not only a celebration of mothers, but a reminder of the love and care that every mother selflessly gives to their families. The importance of mothers is apparent through their widespread celebration through many cultures.
Mothers Day dates back all the way to ancient Greek culture, where people would honor the Goddess Rhea, a mother of many deities in Greek Mythology.
Today, mother’s day is prevalent throughout the world, such as in Indian culture where there is an entire 10 day festival to honor the Goddess of Mothers, Durga.
Across the globe in Ethopia, at the end of the rainy season in fall mothers are honored for three days. Sons and daughters will prepare them a meal while the men in the family sing songs to the mom.
Many of you can remember the affection that your moms gave, and the food memories in the kitchen , where the main ingredient was always love.
