Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day



Mother’s day is the celebration of motherhood for all the lovable mothers in the world. It was first celebrated in 1908 when Anna Jarvis held as the memorial event for her mother in West Virginia, inviting the other mothers to honor them. It generally falls in the month of May or March in different countries.

It is the way to honor the mothers for their support, love and everything they do for their children. The celebration founds its roots to the Roman and Greek periods if looked back. The ancestors used to celebrate the similar festival of motherhood to honor their mother goddess.

Rhea and Cybele are considered the mother goddesses who were worshiped on an occasion in Christianity, named as Mothering Sunday.

To show appreciation towards their own mothers, along with all the mothers on earth, the day gained popularity in many countries. People easily accepted this Christian tradition later and the festival became universal.
