Celebrating motherhood and mothers, Motherís Day became the day to commemorate the maternal bonds and the influence mothers have on the society. Celebrated on different days across the world, especially during March, April or May, the day also completes the significant Fatherís day. An invention of the Americans, the day is not related to the celebrations conducted all through the world for over thousands of years. Motherhood was even celebrated in Greece, by the cult to Cybele or in the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebrations. All these days became synonymous in identifying maternal love.

For most of us, this day marks with acknowledging and appreciating our mothers, their immense love and their innumerable sacrifices. Most of us give gifts, or Send Mothers Day Flowers to bestow our parents who care and love us the most.

History of Motherís Day

The modern conception of Motherís Day was first observed on 1908. The day saw Anna Jarvis hold a memorial service for her mother in America. She then proceeded to begin a campaign to make that day, ďMotherís day,Ē as a recognized holiday. She was successful to accomplish this in 1914, however, she was greatly disheartened with the commercialization that prevailed by the 1920s. The Jarvis holiday was adopted in other countries and slowly started to be lauded all over the world. The person offered personalized gifts like the Mothers Day Flowers, cards, or remembrance towards mothers or all maternal figures. There already existed days for heralding mothers in America in the 1870s and 1880s, but they never reverberated beyond the local areas. The efforts of Julia Wardís Howe were never mentioned as she tried desperately to establish Motherís Day for Peace in the 1870s. The Mothering Sunday was also never mentioned anywhere.

Traditions of Motherís Day

As it evolved, Motherís Day has ceased to be just a day for the mothers. It is often considered a holiday, though it has different meaning in each country and culture. Associated with different religious, cultural or historical event, there is no fixed day for the celebration of this fond remembrance. The extent of these celebrations also varies with each country. Sometimes the culture prevents not marking this day, on the other hand, the festival is also minimally celebrated by immigrants. The holiday is strongly associated with remembering with Virgin Mary with the Roman Catholics. With special shrines dedicated to Virgin Mother, the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox churches also holds special prayer services to eulogize the mother. In the Hindu culture, the day is remembered as the ďMata Tirtha Aunshi.Ē It is celebrated in Nepal and is observed on the new moon day in the month of Baisakh, which is during the April/May. This celebration predates the western holiday by centuries.

Motherís day by Countries

In the Arab countries, the day is held on 21 March of every year. First introduced by the Egyptian journalist Mustafa Amin, the day is celebrated with traditional songs. Though the journalist was arrested, and the government tried to change its name to ďFamily Day,Ē the day continues to be celebrated with Mothers Day Flowers and gifts. On the other hand, Indonesia celebrates Hari Ibu, on 22 December. It honors the spirit of Indonesian women. However, the meaning has changed, and today it is common trend to Send Mothers Day Flowers or to hold surprise parties for mothers.
