The earliest Mother's Day celebrations are traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods. In the United States Mother's Day was first suggested in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe as a day dedicated to peace.

最早的母亲节要追溯到古希腊为纪念众神之母瑞亚而举行的春季庆典。在美国,母亲节是1872年朱莉亚·沃德·豪作为和平日首次提出的。

 
 => 简明语法


which和who用于指人的例子:

—Who do you want to speak to?
—I want to speak to Mr. Smith.
—We have two Smiths here. Which(of them) do you want?
—你想找谁谈?
—我想找史密斯先生谈。
—我们这里有两位姓史密斯的。你要找的是哪一位?
which(代词)指人的时候,不能单独用做动词的主语:
Which of you knows the formula?
你们谁知道这个公式?(“of you”是必要的。)
也可以说:
Who knows the formula?

which(形容词)表示轻微限定的意思时可以用于指人:
Which poet(of all the poets) do you like best?
(在所有的诗人当中)你最喜欢哪一位诗人?
这里可以用what代替which,并且更合乎逻辑,但通常避免用
形容词what来指人。
