Why We Celebrate Mother’s Day

Why We Celebrate Mother’s Day

Each year on the second Sunday of May we celebrate Mother’s Day sharing love and appreciating the hard work women mothers go through in raising kids and their families.

It is a special day celebrated worldwide. It is believed that Mother’s Day was first celebrated in the US. A woman named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother because her mother expressed a desire and had asked her to hold a memorial after her death.

Thus, three years after her mother’s death on May 10, 1908, Jarvis held a memorial ceremony to honour her mother and all mothers at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church.

Since then it has been a date every child marks on their calendar never to forget. From the day a child is born, she works hard to make sure that her child is equipped with the knowledge, skills and abilities. She gives her best to make you a competent human being. Being a mother is perhaps the hardest, most rewarding job.

This has been a difficult year with people having to settle for less to celebrate special events like Mother’s Day but it’s the thought that counts.

This is a day almost everyone would want to spend with their dearly beloved mother or at least do something meaningful for her but with this global pandemic not everyone has been able to do so.

People are not only locked down in their homes but their pockets too. However this did not stop others from showing their mothers love though restaurants are closed down.

Meanwhile, majority took to social media expressing the heartfelt love and appreciation to their moms.
