Mother: The word suffices! To explain her role in our lives, the one who cares the most, the one who loves the most, the one who brings us to this world, the one who sacrifices her own desires and enjoyment for our little joy, the one who always motivates us, the one who is always in our hearts, no matter whether she is far away or close to us, she always calls our energies to stand up and overcome in any situation.
Mother’s Day: There is one relationship in this mortal life which effortlessly scores above all other known relationships on this Earth. Feeling confused?

Let us throw some light into the occasion with the help of various detailed information in the form of origin, the reason for celebration, modes of celebration and other essential facts.
Origin of mother’s day: The present-day celebration of Mother’s Day began in the year 1908 when Anna Jarvis organized a memorial for her mother, Ann Jarvis, a peace activist who used to care the wounded soldiers of the American Civil War. The event was held at the St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia, which currently holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine. Anna Jarvis began the task of getting support for the celebration of Mother’s Day in the United States in 1905 after her mother died the same year. She wanted to honour all the mothers of the world who have done a lot for their family and society.
Due to her continuous efforts, most of the US states by 1911 started celebrating Mother’s Day as a local holiday and the West Virginia, the home state of Jarvis became the first state to declare the holiday for the occasion in the year 1910. Finally, the second Sunday of May was officially designated as Mother’s Day in the USA and was declared as a national holiday after Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of United States of America signed the proclamation in the year 1914. In this way, the present Mother’s Day came into existence in the USA and the same date is also selected by countries like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Italy, Singapore, Belgium, and a lot more other countries.
Why do we celebrate mother’s day? Mother’s Day is an occasion which is celebrated in various parts of the world to express respect, honour, and love towards mothers.
