The History of Mother’s Day
For over a century, we’ve celebrated Mother’s Day as a holiday. Anna Jarvis held the first official Mother’s Day worship service in 1905 at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Jarvis tirelessly worked since 1868 to make this happen. She always claimed that Mother’s Day was her invention. A celebration she created following her mother’s death. In the subsequent years, the US government designated it a national holiday. Today, over 40 countries around the world celebrate Mother’s Day, although the dates and traditions vary.
Mother’s Day Celebrations Around the World and with Best Mother’s Day Gifts
Although Anna Jarvis coined the term “Mother’s Day,” celebrations of motherhood have been a part of different cultures for centuries. In the UK, people have celebrated Mothering Sunday since the Middle Ages. Back then, it was a day when Christians would visit their “mother church.” Later, it became a day when domestic servants would get a day off to visit their families, especially their mothers. Mother’s Day was closely associated with the Virgin Mary in Catholic and Lutheran traditions.
While there is no concept of Mother’s Day in Islam, the Quran teaches that children should prioritize their love for their mothers over their fathers.
In the Hindu tradition, people celebrate Mother’s Day as “Mata Tirtha Aunshi” or “Mother Pilgrimage Fortnight” in countries such as Nepal. The celebration is based on the Hindu religion and predates the creation of the US-inspired Mother’s Day for several centuries. Buddhism has a similar practice. Buddhists celebrate the festival of Ullambana, derived from the story of Maudgalyayana and his mother.
Today, these traditions are celebrated worldwide and have become collectively known as Mother’s Day.
