“Mother”; a word that is full of emotions. We celebrate mother’s day to honour motherhood, is observed in different forms throughout the world. Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914.
Moreover, we can track Mother’s Day back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held celebrations in consideration of the mother Rhea and Cybele, but the most explicit modern exemplar for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday”.
As time flew Mothering Sunday culture turned into a more secular holiday, and children would present their mothers’ flowers and other gifts as a gesture of appreciation. This culture evolved with time.
“All Women are mothers because all women bring life to the world in some way”. – Holley Gerth.
Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day?
We consider this day as an event that we organise to honour our mothers for their contribution, compliance of the motherly bonds, and the role of mother’s in the making of our society.
It is a day which makes people remember the importance of mothers in their lives. This day is a medium for the children to show their sincere feelings towards their mothers. We celebrate his day to embrace the ‘mother-child’ bond.
All people can understand, and feel this fully that having your mother by your side, is a favour of God. We all know this very well that no one can take care of a child as a mother does. Mothers are the angels on earth.
