Significance of International Mother’s Day

May 06, 2022    7 min read

A mother’s touch is warm and comforting, we are always relying on the three letter word, “mom” for absolutely everything at most times. The age old cliche will always stand true, ``A mother is a child’s sense of support and their bond is always unique.” On your good days, you turn to your mother to celebrate with you and on your bad days, you turn to her for unconditional love and support. Either way, isn't every day Mother's Day? The answer is definitely yes and yet, why not celebrate her wholeheartedly on this one dedicated day.

Do you want to know more about Mother’s Day?

It is believed that many years ago in 1908, Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia held a beautiful memorial for her late mother in the church of Grafton, West Virginia. To pay ode to her mom, she wore a white carnation. Her love and sincerity for her mother touched those who were attending this service. They all started wearing red or pink carnations to represent a living mother and white carnations for their late mothers. After this, it became a ritual that may be followed in the month of May on the second Sunday. Over the years this show of love and affection is celebrated on one single dedicated day for mothers.

When is Mother’s Day celebrated?

This year we celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday, May 8, 2022. Every year the date changes but it is typically celebrated on the second Sunday of the month of May in most parts of the world. However, there are countries that celebrate their own version of this day as well on different dates.
