About Mother's Day


Mother's Day is a holiday that is celebrated annually in honor of mothers and motherhood. The modern holiday was first celebrated in the United States in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother, Ann Jarvis, who had worked as a peace activist during the Civil War and had established "Mother's Day Work Clubs" to address public health issues.


The holiday has since spread to many countries around the world and is typically celebrated on the second Sunday in May in the United States, Canada, and many other countries. In some countries, such as the United Kingdom, Mother's Day is celebrated on a different day.


On Mother's Day, people typically give gifts, cards, or flowers to their mothers to show their appreciation and love. Many families also gather together for a special meal or activity to celebrate the holiday. It is a day to recognize and honor the important role that mothers play in our lives and in society.
