有人知道Honoring Mothers是什麼意思嗎

Honoring Mothers

Mothers hold a special place in the hearts of people all over the world, and many people have a special day on which to honor them.

The earliest celebrations for a mother were part of an ancient Greek festival to welcome the coming of spring and honor Rhea, the mother of the gods. Later, during the 1600s, “Mothering Sunday”was first celebrated in England. In some areas of the country, servants were given the day off on Mothering Sunday so they could visit their mothers. In other parts of England, people used this day to celebrate the “Mother Church,”which is the main church oh the area. People usually went to the “Daughter Church”in their parish on most Sundays and it was considered important to return to their Mother Church once a year. They would return home to visit their Mother Church and their own mothers as well on Mothering Sunday. Eventually, Mothering Sunday became a day for people throughout Europe and the British Isles to honor both their mothers and the Church.

In the United States, a woman named Ana Jarvis proposed that the second Sunday in May be set aside to honor mothers throughout the nation. Her hometown of Philadelphia was the first to celebrate Mother’s Day on that day in 1908. Ms. Jarvis wrote to churches and business leaders across the country to encourage them to celebrate Mother’s Day in their communities, too. The holiday then became widespread, and in 1914 the second Sunday in May was names as the United States’ official Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is also celebrated in many other countries including Sweden, Mexico, Australia, Japan, China, Canada, and Singapore. Young children and adults celebrate this special day with their mothers, giving them gifts of flowers and candy to thank them for their love and kindness.

    以下是我的翻譯啦:

    永讚母親

    (其實看完文章,我會這樣翻:母親節的由來....=.=)

    在全世界人的心目中,母親在我們心中佔有很重要的一席之地,並且許多人在特地的一天會對他們的母親表示敬重及讚頌。

    最早慶祝母親節起源於古老的希臘,在春麥季節到來之時讚頌眾神之母:Rhea(蕾亞)。之後,在1600年時英國有母親節假期,部份地區的公務員均有一天星期天假日可以讓他們回去探望自己的母親。

    這裡停一下,因為這一段有關基督教的部份我也有看沒有懂:

    In other parts of England, people used this day to celebrate the “Mother Church,”which is the main church oh the area. People usually went to the “Daughter Church”in their parish on most Sundays and it was considered important to return to their Mother Church once a year. They would return home to visit their Mother Church and their own mothers as well on Mothering Sunday. Eventually, Mothering Sunday became a day for people throughout Europe and the British Isles to honor both their mothers and the Church.

    這部份好像是說:

    在部份的英國,人們會在這天在這地區主要的教堂裡慶祝。人們通常在假日到教區附近的教堂,並認為每年必須返回到他們所受洗的教堂一次。他們會在母親節假期這天回到家中探望母親並且到所受洗的教堂裡。最後,母親節假日變成了歐洲人以讚頌他們的母親及受洗的教堂很重要的一天。

    解釋: mother church以基督教來說,好像就是出生時所接受受洗的教堂。

    在美國,有一名叫做Ana Jarvis的女子提議在五月的第二個星期日為母親節以紀念全國的母親。在1908年,她的家鄉費城是第一個慶祝母親節的城市。jarvis女士更致信給全國的教會和許多商業領袖(白話翻譯叫:公司老闆...哈哈)鼓勵他們在自己的地區以慶祝母親節。在1914年,美國便以五月的第二個星期日定為母親節並訂為國定假日。

    母親節也是很多其他的國家,包括瑞典、 墨西哥、 澳大利亞、 日本、 中國、 加拿大和新加坡的節日。小孩們和成年人都會在這特別的一天送花或禮物給他們的母親,以感謝母親所付出的慈愛。

    Honoring Mothers

    honoriing在這裡是動名詞, 而非分詞或形容詞

    意思是: 向天下的媽媽們致敬
