Hello Video Lovers,

Mother's Day is not just another "Hallmark Holiday". As far back as 250 B.C. ancient Romans celebrated a spring festival called, Hilaria. This was dedicated to a mother goddess named, Cybele, on the Ides of March.

The modern story of Mother's Day is a little more mundane, but no less important for those irreplaceable figures in all of our lives.
