As the name suggests, Mother’s Day is a celebration of the mother of the family, of her relentless contributions towards the growth and well-being of her children. 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 day out.
The day is celebrated annually in many countries around the world. While the dates vary every year, it is largely celebrated on the second Sunday of the month of May every year. This year, it will be celebrated on May 10.
It is believed that the modern Mother’s Day celebration first began in the US, when a woman by the name of Anna Jarvis wanted the day to be celebrated because her own mother had expressed such a desire.
When she passed, Jarvis took up the initiative and held a memorial for her mother in the year 1908, three years after her death. It was done at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in West Virginia.
It is said that while she herself did not attend it, she sent a telegram to the attendees, highlighting the significance of the day. She also sent them five hundred white carnations, it is said.
