What is Mother's Day?

Mother's Day as we celebrate it today is a fairly recent practice dating back to the early 20th Century when Anna Jarvis campaigned to make it a recognised holiday. The practice then spread across the world and was given relevance within a countries own culture and religion. This also led to the creation of a Father's Day.

Mother's Day is observed on different days throughout the world the most widely celebrated is the Second Sunday of May, but dates such as the Fourth Sunday in Lent, Last Sunday of May and March 21st are also widely recognised as Mother's Day.

Mother's Day is the day to show your Mother how much you care; this is commonly done through the giving of Mother's day gifts such as Cards, Flowers and Chocolates.
