In ancient Greece Rhea was revered as the mother goddess and in ancient Rome it was Hera, the jealous wife of Zeus, and another mother goddess known as Cybele.
Most mothering festivals in early history were in the springtime to cele...

and found a little about it as she states:
" I had never heard of it before yesterday. And after doing a tiny little bit of research it seems that the origin of the award is very unclear. This is what I found":
'Liebster' means 'favorite' or 'dearest' in German. ...
All of us have seen an Easter egg basket full of chocolate eggs and candies but not many have heard about a blessings basket.My family is from Mexico but we have been able to have the experience of this Polish celebration first hand, because my Daughter in Law is from Poland and we are so happy to help her to maintain the tradition in our family.
