Mother’s Day is a holiday commemorating a family’s or individual’s mother, as well as maternity, maternal relationships, and mothers’ influence in society. Usually, we celebrate this on various days around the world, most notably in the months of March and May.

The start of Mother’s Day

While some countries have celebrated matriarchial figures for centuries, the modern American version of the holiday began in the early twentieth century in the United States, thanks to Anna Jarvis. She organized the first Mother’s Day worship and celebration at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia.

Mother’s Day became an international holiday commemorating the respect, honor, and love that people have for their moms. The day honors their contributions, as well as the efforts of maternal bonding and their role in our society.
