Happy Mothers Day to all the mums

in life •  2 years ago

Three words 'happy mothers day' could mean a lot to a mother, when they hear it from some of their loved ones. 'Mother' is someone who always enjoys a special place in everyone's life and I wondered why its celebrated on different days in UK and the rest of the world.

In the UK, the original event had nothing to do with mothers at all and it was a day for Christians to visit their “mother” church.In the past, domestic servants were given the day off to return to their hometown and worship with their families.The UK’s Mother’s Day always falls on the fourth Sunday during the period of Lent.

The US event was launched separately and was not linked to religion but was dedicated entirely to mothers.Anna Jarvis, the leader of the mums group, campaigned for a May date in memory of her own mum, who had died that month. President Wilson formalised the mothers day to second Sunday of May and many other countries adopted the same.

Enough history, now pick that phone, call a mother and make this day a special one, filled with gratitude and love.

I hope you have a day with your whole family. Men could do little without women. We need them and they are something beautiful for our lives. Have a beautiful Sunday. Big hug!
