A History of Mother's Day

We celebrate "Mother's Day" in honor of our female parents. A mother is a loving human who may sacrifice her wants and needs for her child or children. These women work hard to make sure their children have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to make it as adults. They teach us to have confidence and believe in ourselves. This day honors mothers and motherhood. It is celebrated to express respect, honor, and love towards them.

This event became a national holiday in 1914 when Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation declaring the second Sunday in May to be designated as Mother's Day. Anna Jarvis was the original founder of Mother's Day. She created the holiday in dedication to pay tribute to her late mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis. Anna encouraged people who could not visit their mothers to write letters expressing their love and gratitude for them.

For many, the tradition of Mother's Day involves visiting our mothers and bringing them flowers and gifts. Everybody has their own way of celebrating the holiday, whether it is going out to eat, buying cards, candy, or even going to church services.

Mother's Day will be on Sunday, May 9th, 2021, this year. Every day you should enjoy the time you have with your mother, but this holiday makes them feel more special about themselves. If you haven't yet, you should start preparing for the holiday. You shouldn't let your mother feel like she doesn't deserve anything. The only gift some mothers may want is to spend time with their families and bond. The best thing to do is plan ahead now instead of waiting at the last minute. Be prepared for this special occasion and show tons of love!
