Mother’s Day 2017: Every year the second Sunday of May was celebrated as Mother’s Day. This year the second Sunday comes on May 14th, 2017. All of us would agree that mothers deserve more than just a day dedicated to them. We often forget to appreciate our moms for their sacrifice and love.
In Greece, honouring motherhood has been linked to the Eastern Orthodox celebration of the presentation of Jesus Christ to the temple. The day is marked on February 2, according to the Julian calendar.
Anna Marie Jarvis
Anna Marie Jarvis was the founder of ‘Mother’s Day’. Moreover, she was the child of Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis. Further, Reeves was organising several events namely “Mother’s Day Work Clubs”. As Jarvis was a social activist, she fought to bring down ‘infant mortality’.
During the events, she was inviting doctors to carry out talks with mothers. All the discussions were focusing on the way to keep their kids tidy as well as healthy. In addition, the clubs were educating mothers with up-to-the-minute sanitation and hygiene practices.
In most Arab countries, the celebrations of Mother’s Day are carried out on March 21, which is the Spring equinox. A few Catholic countries observe it on the Virgin Mary Day, and in Bolivia, Mother’s Day is the date of a battle in which women participated. Moreover, ex-communist countries celebrate International Women’s Day instead of Mother’s Day. In Russia, people still follow the custom or observe both the days as Mother’s Day.
