The custom of celebrating Mother’s Day is present in the world since centuries although it became a modern day culture in the early 19th century. There are many other dates in different countries when Mother’s day is marked. However, the first Sunday of May remains the most widely celebrated and popular around the world.

Mother’s day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year and the tradition was first adopted in the United States after a certain Anna Jarvis held a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognised holiday in the United States in 1905.

It was the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis died and as a token of respect for her mother, the lady declared the day as the mother’s day.

The day was first celebrated in 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia which now houses the International Mother’s Day Shrine.

It is a great example of people gathering universally regardless of their caste and religion. This fact also depicts the pureness of a mother’s nature which teaches selfless love and affection.
