The exchange of eggs in the springtime is a custom that was centuries old when Easter was first celebrated by Christians.
Origin of Mother's Day
Some historians claim that the predecessor of the Mother's Day holiday was the ancient spring festival dedicated to mother goddesses.

In Rome the most significant Mother's Day-like festival was dedicated to the worship of Cybele, another mother goddess.
