Egypt shares a unique history with the celebration of motherhood throughout years. In fact, it is believed that an Egyptian journalist first introduced the phenomenon into the Arab world.

The Arab Mother’s Day is commemorated on March 21 every year across the Gulf, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Sudan and Libya.

But it has been suggested that the idea of honoring mothers dates back to ancient Egyptians, who were among the early civilizations to celebrate motherhood.

It is said that as per the pharaonic tradition, an annual festival was held to honor goddess Isis, who represented the ideal mother and wife in Egyptian mythology.

Some sculptures depicting Isis showed her breastfeeding her son, Horus.

Ancient Greeks also held an annual springtime festival dedicated to maternal goddesses, and ancient Romans celebrated a spring festival for a mother goddess called Cybele.
