【Mother’s Day】Wish all mothers a happy holiday


It is often said that the greatest love in the world is maternal love. Many countries have a holiday to thank their mothers, that is Mother's Day. Mother's Day is a commemoration of the mother's contribution in the developing society. People celebrate Mother’s Day on different date in many parts of the world.


The origin of the modern Mother’s Day:

Mother's Day in the modern sense began in the early 20th century and originated in the United States. It was initiated by Anna Jarvis. Modern Mother’s Day and many traditional mother’s celebrations that have existed throughout the world for thousands of years (such as the worship of Sebel by the Greeks, the great mother Rhea of the gods, the Roman Hilaria or Christian Mother’s Day Celebration) is not directly related. However, in some countries or regions, Mother's Day is still synonymous with these older traditions.


Ann Jarvis was a pacifist who had taken care of wounded soldiers on both sides during the American Civil War. When her mother died in 1905, Anna Jarvis was heartbroken. Two years later, in 1907, Anna Jarvis and her friends began to write to influential ministers, businessmen, and lawmakers in the United States to seek support in order to make Mother's Day a legal holiday. Anna Jarvis believes that her children often ignore their feelings towards her mother. She hopes that Mother's Day will make people think more about what the mother has done for the family. The first Mother's Day was held in West Virginia and Pennsylvania on May 10, 1908. In this day, Cornelius was selected as the flower dedicated to her mother and passed down through it. With the unremitting efforts of Anna Jarvis, in 1913, the US Congress passed a bill deciding to make the second Sunday of May every year as the statutory Mother’s Day.


Subsequently, "Mother's Day" spread in many countries. Although the dates of Mother's Day in different countries are not the same, most countries have the same Mother's Day as the United States, which is set on the second Sunday of May every year, including China. Festivals are the crystallization and carrier of culture. The establishment of Mother's Day is actually to let the love of the parents of the world have a channel to show, so that the filial piety of the children of the world can express exquisitely.
