Mother’s Day is celebrated in many countries worldwide to honor and appreciate mothers and mother figures for their love, dedication, and contribution to their families and society. This special day is a time to recognize and show gratitude to all the mothers who have selflessly given their time, energy, and love to raise and support their children.
The history of Mother’s Day can be traced back to the United States in the early 20th century when Anna Jarvis, a peace activist, wanted to create a day to honor her mother who had passed away. Anna Jarvis’s mother was a strong advocate for women’s rights and social justice, and she also cared for wounded soldiers during the American Civil War.
After her mother’s death, Anna Jarvis campaigned to create a holiday to honor the sacrifices that mothers make for their families and to recognize their important role in society. In 1908, the first official Mother’s Day celebration was held in Grafton, West Virginia, and it quickly gained popularity in other states.
In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day, making it a national holiday in the United States. The holiday soon spread to other countries around the world and became an international celebration of motherhood.
Mother’s Day is celebrated in different ways in different countries. In some countries, it is celebrated as a religious holiday, while in others, it is a secular celebration. It is common for people to give gifts, cards, and flowers to their mothers on this special day. Many families also gather together for special meals or activities to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day is an important reminder of the love and sacrifice that mothers make every day. It is a time to express gratitude and appreciation for all the hard work and dedication that mothers put into raising their children. So, this Mother’s Day, let’s take the time to thank our mothers and mother figures for all they have done and continue to do for us.
On this special day, we at #bsis want to recognize all the hardworking moms who balance so much to ensure their children’s success. Your dedication and commitment do not go unnoticed. Wishing you all a happy mother’s Day
