Mothers Day

When is Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day 2023: As the name suggests, Mother’s Day is a celebration of the mother of the family, when you could finally thank your mother for her relentless contributions towards the growth and well-being of her children. Mother is the first friend, teacher and guide of a child and therefore it is important to celebrate Mother’s Day to acknowledge everything she does assiduously for you. While one day is really not enough to pay tribute to and honour the mother, the day encourages people to come out in support and acknowledgement of everything that a mother tirelessly does, day in and out. The second Sunday of May is to be observed as Mother’s Day to honour the mothers.

What is the History of Mother’s Day?

The origin of Mother’s Day is attributed to two women named, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis, who are believed to have established the idea of Mother’s Day in the USA. Anna’s mother had expressed a desire and had asked her to hold a memorial after her death. The first World War was going on at that time and following her mother’s desire, Anna created a Mother’s day club to address the health issues of wounded soldiers.

Why it is important to celebrate Mother’s Day?

It is important to celebrate Mother’s Day to thank your mother for everything she does for her child without any selfishness and show her unconditional love and affection. A mother is a child’s first friend with whom he or she shares all of their joys, sorrows, emotions and happiness. Thus it is important to celebrate Mother’s Day to make your mom feel special.
