Mother's Day 2024: A celebration of love and sacrifice

Bhubaneswar, May 12: Mother's Day is that special time of the year when we take a moment to say "thank you" to the amazing women who make our lives brighter every day. It's more than just a day for flowers and cards—it's a day to celebrate the incredible love and strength of moms everywhere.

Every year, on the second Sunday in May, people worldwide come together to celebrate Mother's Day, a special occasion dedicated to honoring our mothers. This year, Mother's Day falls on May 12, a day eagerly anticipated by many. 

It serves as a poignant reminder to recognize the often overlooked contributions of mothers, whose unwavering support and selflessness shape the lives of their children.

Mother's Day offers an opportunity to express gratitude for the countless sacrifices made by mothers in nurturing and guiding their families. It's a day to acknowledge their immeasurable role in the success and well-being of their children. As loved ones, we seize this occasion to shower mothers with gifts, cards, and gestures of appreciation, recognizing their unconditional love and care.

However, the origins of Mother's Day reveal a story marked by both celebration and regret. Understanding its inception sheds light on its significance and the journey it has taken over the years.

History:

Mother's Day began as a tribute to Anna Jarvis' mother following her passing in 1905. Anna, inspired by her mother Ann Reeves Jarvis's compassionate efforts during the Civil War, organized a memorial service in their West Virginia hometown two years later, adorning it with 500 white carnations. 

Determined to honor her mother's legacy, Anna campaigned for the establishment of Mother's Day as a national holiday in the US. Her vision was to recognize the immeasurable contributions of all mothers, echoing her belief that a mother's love surpasses any other. Thus, in May 1908, the inaugural Mother's Day celebration took place in Grafton, West Virginia, marking the beginning of a cherished tradition.

Celebration of Mother's Day on 2nd Sunday of May every year:

Mother's Day gained momentum rapidly, with Anna Jarvis and her supporters lobbying prominent figures across the United States to designate the day as a national holiday. By 1911, its observance had extended to all states. Then, in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day.

Today, on every second Sunday of May, we commemorate Mother's Day, a time to honor and appreciate our mothers. This annual occasion prompts us to reflect on the myriad sacrifices mothers make, often quietly, to nurture and uplift their families. Top of Form
