Mothers day, The history

IMG-20180513-WA0005Mothers day, a day of the year on which mothers are particularly honoured by their children. In North America and South Africa it is the second Sunday of May; in Britain it has become another term for Mothering Sunday.

It was founded in the year 1914 by Anna Jarvis. She said, “It wasn’t to celebrate all mothers. It was to celebrate the best mother you’ve ever known—your mother—as a son or a daughter.”

Anna Jarvis had a different vision compared to what mothers day has become. You should read more about her if you are interested to know the reason she thought that way.
