The Mother’s Day date varies every year and falls on the second Sunday of May. This year, the day is being celebrated on May 10. The first Mother’s Day celebration began in the US when a woman named Anna Jarvis requested to make it a holiday because her mother wished so before her death. Jarvis took up the initiative and held a memorial in the year 1908, three years after her mother’s death at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in West Virginia.
Though, she herself did not attend it, she sent a telegram to the attendees highlighting the significance of the day. She believed that a mother is, “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” Anna Jarvis’s request to make it a holiday was denied initially in 1911 but US started observing the day to show gratitude to their mothers.
In 1941, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation declaring the second Sunday in the month of May as a national holiday. As per another story, it is believed that it is celebrated in the memory of Mother Church on Christian Mothering Sunday. In Arab countries, the day is celebrated on March 21, which is also known as Spring Equinox.
Wish All The Mommies Out There A Very Happy Mother’s Day!
