As the famous writer Agatha Christie once said, “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all the stands in its path.” This poignant quote is a fantastic way to express a mother’s love— and why we should honour the mothers who have shown this kind of everlasting love to us.
Traditions of celebrating mothers’ have been dated by historians to have started as early as during the Ancient Greek period, but the first modern Mother’s Day was first celebrated by Anna Jarvis in West Virginia, 1907, by holding a memorial for her late mother. Her mother, Ann Jarvis, had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War. After her passing, Anna Jarvis was determined to dedicate Mother’s Day to peace, and, as such, the tradition of celebrating Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May began.
Whilst most nations celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May, some celebrate on 8 March, in conjunction with International Women’s Day. Similarly, the UK celebrates on the fourth Sunday of Lent, instead calling it Mothering Sunday, where they also honour Mary, Mother of Jesus.
