Mother's Day is a beautiful occasion that honors and celebrates the incomparable, and vital role of a mother.
Celebrations of Mother's Day can be traced back to the early 20th century in the United States.
It is believed that United States celebrated the first Mother’s Day.
In the United States, a woman named Anna Jarvis organized a memorial in her mother's memory after her death in 1905.
In honour of her mother Jarvis organized a memorial ceremony at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.
Thus, the celebration of Mother’s Day began to recognize their efforts and value in our lives.
However, Mother's Day officially began in 1914 when former US President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation.
The proclamation declared the second Sunday in the month of May as a national holiday.
Indian citizens celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May every year.
This year, India will mark the celebrations for Mother’s Day on May 8 (Sunday).
