A Day for the Most Special Woman of Your Life

In the tapestry of relationships that weave through our lives, there's one thread that shines the brightest, illuminating our days with boundless love and unwavering support. Can you guess who that might be? It's none other than the remarkable presence of a mother, whose love, dedication, and selflessness know no bounds. And to honour and celebrate this extraordinary bond, Mother's Day, falling on Sunday, May 12, 2024, is observed with joy and gratitude across more than 46 countries worldwide.

The Roots of Mother's Day

The seeds of Mother's Day were sown in 1908, when a woman named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother, Ann Jarvis, a compassionate soul who tended to wounded soldiers during the American Civil War. This heartfelt event took place at the St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia, now home to the International Mother's Day Shrine. Anna Jarvis, deeply moved by her mother's legacy, embarked on a mission to establish a day dedicated to honouring all mothers, recognising their tireless efforts and invaluable contributions to families and communities.

Anna's tireless advocacy bore fruit, as by 1911, many states in the USA began observing Mother's Day as a local holiday. West Virginia led the charge by officially declaring it a holiday in 1910. Finally, on the second Sunday of May, 1914, Mother's Day was officially recognised as a national holiday in the United States, thanks to the proclamation signed by President Woodrow Wilson. This historic moment influenced countries worldwide, such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Italy, Singapore, and Belgium, to embrace the same date for celebrating mothers.
