Mother’s Day …

Mother's Day 2024 Date and History: The month of May is here, and with it comes Mother's Day (International Mother's Day). Mother's Day is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May. This year it falls on May 12th, Sunday. Mother's Day is a day dedicated to mothers. But do you know how this day came to be celebrated? Why is it celebrated on the second Sunday of May? Let's delve into the history of Mother's Day and how it originated in America.

It all started with a woman named Anna Jarvis, who deeply loved her mother. Anna never married and devoted her life to taking care of her mother. When her mother passed away, Anna missed her terribly. She often thought about how much mothers do for their children throughout their lives, yet their sacrifices and dedication often go unrecognized. She believed there should be a day dedicated to honoring mothers for their selfless love, sacrifices, and devotion.

Anna's mother passed away in May, so she began celebrating her mother's death anniversary as Mother's Day. After her mother's death, Anna devoted her entire life to serving others, much like a mother would. During World War I, Anna served wounded American soldiers with a motherly compassion. To honor her service and dedication, former U.S. President Woodrow Wilson passed a law recognizing Anna's efforts and officially declared Mother's Day as a day of celebration. A law was passed in the U.S. Congress to celebrate this day on the second Sunday of May each year. Since then, Mother's Day has been celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May.

Initially, Mother's Day was only celebrated in America, but it has now spread to many other countries, including Europe, India, and various other nations. It has become a day to express gratitude and appreciation for the unconditional love and sacrifices that mothers make for their children. So, as we approach Mother's Day this year, let's take a moment to honor and appreciate the special women in our lives who have nurtured, loved, and cared for us with unwavering devotion.
