Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is an annual holiday celebrated in many countries around the world, typically on the second Sunday in May. It is a day dedicated to honouring and appreciating mothers and mother figures for their love, support, and sacrifices they make for their children and families.

Modern Mother’s Day originated in the United States in the early 20th century when Anna Jarvis started a campaign to establish a national holiday to honour mothers. The first official Mother’s Day was celebrated in 1908, and it quickly gained popularity, spreading to other countries over the years.

On Mother’s Day, people often give gifts or cards to their mothers or mother figures and may also spend time with them or take them out for a special meal. It is also a time to reflect on the important role that mothers play in our lives and in society and to show appreciation for all that they do.

While the date and customs associated with Mother’s Day may vary across different cultures and countries, the sentiment of showing love and gratitude towards mothers is a universal one.
