A smile on her face can light up our lives. Don't you think it is true? The occasion of Mother’s Day commemorates the pure bond of eternal love between a mother and her child. Celebrated with great zeal all across the world, it is a day when all the family members, especially children, show their respect and love to their mother by doing something special for her. 

It can be anything from taking her to lunch, dinner or gifting her something special - a souvenir, to remembering and cherish her for life. Because a mother is someone who does more than anyone can do for her children in the entire world and this is the chance when the kids get to reciprocate to their unconditional love. Mother’s Day 2020 will be observed on May 10 across the world. 

History of Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day in USA. Mother’s Day was initially celebrated in the 1900s when a woman named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her beloved mother Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis in West Virginia, USA. She even started a campaign to commemorate this day as a public holiday in honour of her mother who had died as a peace activist amid the testing times of the American Civil War. For this, various Mother’s Day Clubs were created too and then, eventually, due to her efforts, finally, the first Mother’s Day holiday was celebrated on May 9, 1914.

Mother’s Day in France. In France as well, the history of Mother’s Day dates back to the 19th century. This was a time when the low birth rate and the declining population of the whole country had become a cause of great concern for the government. In these catastrophic times, the idea to celebrate Mothers, somewhat as a symbol of affection, love and, above all, hope was materialized. In 1904, mothers were added to the Paternal Union and in 1908, la Ligue Populaire des Pères et Mères de Familles Nombreuses was created with the objective to honour both parents equally. 

But in 1918, Lyon, a city in France was the first to propose a special day solely meant for honouring and respecting mothers. And then, eventually, the French Government declared it as an official holiday.
