Mother’s Day is being celebrated across the globe today to share sentiments and express profound love for mothers.

The day aim is to honour mothers and highlight their sacrifices for their children and their vital role in the society.

Like every year, several organisations have arranged colourful programmes in this connection.

It is a time to honor mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers for their contribution to family and society.

The Day is celebrated with gifts, cards, flowers, a special meal out, jewelry, or chocolates and candy.


Mother’s Day originated from mainly two women, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis.

Julia Ward sponsored Mother’s Day each year in Boston around 1870 to promote pacifism and disarmament with women. It lasted about 10 years.

Anna Jarvis organized the first Mother’s Day in Grafton, West Virginia at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in 1908.
