MOTHER IS LIKE COOL WATER
Traditional Pontian Song
Song: Petros Gaitanos

Όταν γερά η μάνα κι άλλο 'κι μπορεί, (2)
α τότε θέλ' βοήθειαν, α τότε θέλ' ζωήν,
α τότε θέλ' ζωήν.
Όταν θα έρτε η ώρα κι άλλο 'κι θα ζει,
αμάν και φτάσ' το χρέωσις θα καίεται η ψυ' σ'.
.
Η μάνα εν κρύον νερόν και σο ποτήρ 'κι μπαίν'
η μάνα να μη ίνεται, η μάνα να μη εν',
η μάνα να μη εν'.
.
Η μάνα εν' βράχος, η μάνα εν' ραχίν, (2)
σο δύσκολον την ώρας μανίτσα, μανίτσα,
μανίτσα μ' θα τσαείς.
Η μάνα εν' το στήριγμαν, τη χαράς το κλαδίν,
τ' ατηνές η εγάπη 'κι βρίεται ση γην.
.
Η μάνα εν' κρύον νερόν και σο ποτήρ 'κι μπαίν'
η μάνα να μη ίνεται, η μάνα να μη εν',
η μάνα να μη εν'.
.
Θα δεβένε τα χρόνια, θα έρουμε και μεις, (2)
ατά είναι με τη σειράν 'κι θα γλυτών' κανείς,
κι θα γλυτών' κανείς.
Και όλ' πρέπ' να εξέρουμε σ' αούτο τη ζωήν
χωρίς τη μάνας την ευχήν κανείς κε 'λέπ' χαΐρ.
.
Η μάνα εν' κρύον νερόν και σο ποτήρ 'κι μπαίν'
η μάνα να μη ίνεται, η μάνα να μη εν',
η μάνα να μη εν'.



The celebration of MOTHER'S DAY is maybe the oldest and first of all events. It goes back as long as there are mothers.

The Greatest of all Mothers

Greeks paid tribute to mothers as goddesses. It was a spring event to celebrate birth and fertility to honor Mother Gaea. Later it changed to Honor her daughter Rhea. The Celtic Pagans marked the coming of spring with a fertility celebration linking their goddess Brigid together with the first milk of the ewes.

The very first known celebrations in honour of mothers were held in ancient Greece during the spring. Greeks paid tribute to Gaea (Mother Earth)  who gave birth to all living beings and to her daughter Rhea, The Mother of the Gods. Rhea was the titan of "Earth and Fertility", both sister and wife to Cronus. However Cronus, after having been told that he would be dethroned by his own son, swallowed his own offspring at birth. Rhea tricked Cronus by saving her son Zeus and giving Cronus a rock to swallow instead.

"...And since both Gaia (earth) and Ouramus (sky) foretold him (Chronos) that he would be dethroned by his own son, he used to swallow his offspring at birth... enraged at this, Rhea repaired to Crete, when she was big with Zeus, and brought him forth in a cave of Dicte. She gave him to the Curetes and to the Nymphs... to nurse. So these Nymphs fed the child on the milk of Amalthea (the Goat)... but Rhea wrapped a stone in swaddling clothes and gave it to Chronos to swallow..."(Apollodorus, Bibliotheca I.I.5-7).


When Zeus grew up he forced his father to disgorge his five siblings: Poseidon, Hades, Demeter, Hestia, and Hera. He also revolted against Cronus and the other Titans, defeating and banishing them to the underworld, Tartarus.

Cronus himself managed to escape to Italy, where he ruled as Saturn. The period of his rule was said to be the "Golden Age" on earth, honoured by the "Saturnia Feast" or Cronia.

After overthrowing his father Zeus drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades. Zeus won the draw and became the supreme ruler of all the Gods and formed the Olympians. The Olympians are a group of 12 gods. They are named after their dwelling place Mount Olympus and all are related in some way.

Zeus is the lord of the sky, the rain god. His weapon is a thunderbolt, which he hurls at those who displease him. He is married to Hera,but, is equally famous for his many affairs. He is known to punish those who lie or break oaths.

Happy Mother's Day.

Bonjour Georgios!

I like the Greek attitude, celebrating mothers as goddesses. Love it.

We are of course just that!!!!! LOL.

I get to celebrate, well be congratulated 3 times for Mother's Day.

It was already celebrated in England (on my last day there when I visited earlier this year). It is being celebrated tomorrow by many and I usually receive wishes from many Americans. It will celebrated later on here in France, when my children will give me their love and gifts.

So, I'm a lucky mummy.

Angel cuddles,

Sarah
