The history of Mother’s Day in Germany goes back to the Middle Ages. In Thuringia (one of 16 federal states) there was a Sunday when relatives visited and congratulated each other in the spring. Spring was associated with the beginning of life, and women gave this life to humanity. Nobody worked, everyone went to their parents and the mothers were blessed by their relatives that day. muttertag 2021
