This post is not all about cookies. I know, it’s hard to believe. The thing is, even though I remember baking peanut butter bumble bee cookies for my mother and grandmothers, that tradition seems to be largely familial in origin. Historically, Mother’s Day is traditionally celebrated with cakes instead of cookies.

The Origin of Mother’s Day

In the United States, Mother’s Day was made an official holiday in 1914. It’s a floating holiday here in the States, always falling on the second Sunday of May. This tradition was adopted in many other countries in Europe including Germany, Greece, Latvia, Denmark and Finland. But the idea of Mother’s Day predates the official holiday by centuries.
The Greeks celebrated Rhea, the mother of the gods and the ancient Romans celebrated Cybele, the celebration of the goddess Cybele. Even today, Mother’s Day in different countries often matches up with more ancient versions of the celebration.

Food on Mother’s Day

No matter where Mother’s day is celebrated, there are several common themes. For that one day, children and fathers take over the jobs the mothers usually do, cooking meals and generally making mom’s life as easy as possible. These meals often have traditional elements.

Simnell Cake

Mothers Day Cake

This marzipan covered fruit cake is the traditional food gift in Britain from children to their mothers. It’s quite similar to the Christmas fruit cake. According to popular legend, Simon and his sister Nell wanted to make a cake for their mother. One wanted to bake it. The other wanted to broil it. They ended up doing both and bringing the cake to their mother.

 

French Bloom Cake

In France, Mother’s Day is not celebrated on the second Sunday of May, but instead is celebrated on the last Sunday of the month. A huge family dinner in honor of mother and a special cake decorated as a bouquet of flowers is traditional.

American Traditions

Making cookies is a lot easier than baking cakes. It may be for this reason that cookie baking and gifting is catching on in America, though it hasn’t quite overtaken breakfast in bed or the traditional dinner out. I still think that a plate of bumble bee peanut butter cookies from a 6-year-old is one of the best Mother’s Day gifts, but then again, I might be biased.

Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

I had always wanted to be a mom, but my dreams were set aside after suffering a complicated miscarriage at 14 weeks of pregnancy in 2004. The next year, my husband and I decided to get divorced after four years of marriage. It was a very painful and trying couple of years until I met my now husband, Michael. We got engaged in early 2008 and shortly thereafter found out we were pregnant! We had a wonderful summer wedding and our attendants were his three children from his first marriage. On Halloween, our baby boy, Preston (aka Boo), was born, adding to our family. For my first Mother’s Day, my husband gave me a very special and beautiful sterling silver bead bracelet that spelled out “Preston.” I wear it every single day and think how lucky I am to have a wonderful husband, precious son and three bonus children who we see every other weekend. Life sure has some twists and turns, but if you go with it, your dreams will eventually come true!

Wow.

We got so many great entries for our Mother’s Day cookie competition! You can vote for your favorite here.

It was really hard to pick finalists for this competition. All the entries were so heartwarming and sweet. Being a mother certainly has it’s rewards. Here are the ten entries we picked as finalists here at Smiley Cookie. Thanks so much for telling us your stories.

Elizabeth Fulton:
I’ve only had one Mother’s Day so far, but it was a lovely one. My husband and my daughter took me out for ice cream. I had a big banana split, and my daughter had her first bite of ice cream. A little shiver, but a great big smile. It was a nice afternoon. I look forward to my second Mother’s Day.

Hollie Geitner:

Deb Morgan:
My son did at school, an entire book that he illustrated and wrote in third grade all about me! Why does he love me? “because she helps me with my homework, because she cooks good dinners, because she cares about me, she washes my clothes, she buys me rollerblades, etc,,,” He is now 18 and I cherish that book! I love all the gifts I receive from my children from the seedling that never grows but stays on the windowsill for a year, to tea bags in a paper teapot! Every gift is precious!

Monica Galore:
The best gifts I ever received were individual hand-made ceramic hand prints of my three sons.  My son’s made them in school.  Upon waking up on Mother’s Day, they presented them to me.  I can still see their faces beaming with pride and great big smiles. What a precious and sweet sight to behold!  These are such precious memories of Mother’s Day.  No wonder I love Smiley Face Cookies. They remind me of my three sons with their sweet smiles.

Sherri Craig:
My son who at the time was single and 20 yrs old. Bought me this teddy bear with a little jewelry box attached to it. I opened the box there lay a beautiful white gold chain with a pendant of mother and child the pendant was layered in diamonds. I told him it was beautiful that this is something you give the mother of YOUR children and it was much to expensive for me. I would feel better if he took it back and bought me something simple. He said, “you are a mom, your my mom and your the best mom there ever could be.” I felt the tears build up in my eyes. I didn’t have the heart not to accept it. I wear it everyday.
It wasn’t even the necklace I consider the best present it is the words that came from his lips. I must be a pretty good mom for my young son to say them without even thinking about it. That will always be the best present I could have had…EVER!! Money can’t buy words that are priceless!!!

Kimberly Harter:
No sappy story here just the truth. The best Mother’s Day gift that my husband and son got for me was a STEELERS watch and a SIRIUS radio with a year subscription. We were living in Maryland at the time and I was bumming outt because I could not watch all the STEELERS games on cable there. With the SIRIUS radio I could at least listen to them and the watch is the most worn peice of jewelery I own. I even wear it more than my wedding rings!!

Jo Ann Barko:
The best gift that drove stright into my heart was from my daughter Jacqueline.  Jacqueline went out into my garden and pick a few buds and one of the dogwood flowers. She then wrote this little note and put it all into a pretty silver leaft frame.  It read    ” Mommy,   You are the most beautiful person, and the most respected that I could have. When I grow up, I want to be like you! You are my idol and always will be. You have more than any mothers, I just hope I’m as good as you.   Love you forever, Bambino

Kris Rhoades:
My daughter’s school choir had a concert just before Mother’s Day last year and my daughter said that she was going to give me my gift that night. I video taped the concert, as I usually do, and during one of the songs she started signing the song. She and her friend had learned the sign language for the song and got permission from the teacher to do it that night. Of course I was worried that the video wouldn’t come out because I cried through the whole song. I was a proud Momma and it was the best Mother’s Day present I ever received! (I even posted the video on my facebook page so everyone could see it: http://www.facebook.com/krisrhoades?v=app_2392950137&ref=profile#!/video/video.php?v=75117605793)

Ashley Reynolds:
The best Mother’s Day gift I’ve received? Well, I’ve only had one so far! Last year, my son was 5 months old, and that’s all I needed. My husband and I had lost 2 babies by miscarriage the year earlier, so having my son in my arms on Mother’s Day, is as special as it gets to me!

Pamela Gage:
About 5 years ago, my Husband, Larry, asked our three sons if they would join us for dinner for Mothers Day. That Sept before, my middle son, Rob, had been married to our lovely daughter-in-law Liz, and I was having a difficult time with his “leaving” the house….as Mom’s sometimes do! We had a wonderful dinner together…and after dinner my sons each presented me with a card and small gift. My favorite gift that year was just so perfect, it brought tears to my eyes….Rob and Liz had made a certificate for “Time” to be spent with me….a whole day together! It was so thoughtful, and just what I wanted. A few weeks after that dinner, we went to the zoo, had a simple but delicious lunch together, and quality time that I will never forget. The best “gifts” in life don’t have to be expensive to be special, but time with family and those you love are priceless!

Mothers Day Cookies

I remember celebrating mothers day as a child and eating mothers day cookies with my mom. Gifts usually took the form of macaroni paintings or plaster hand prints. As the years went by and I began to have some money at my disposal, mothers day gifts started to reflect that: A fancy toaster oven one year, pearl earrings the next. I thought I was doing great until I overheard her talking to a friend in June two years ago. She said that her favorite mother’s day gift of all was the macaroni painting I had made of us walking hand in hand when I was six. Since then she’s gotten nothing but hand made gifts which are apparently much more valuable to her than expensive toaster ovens.
