Mother’s Day is a wonderful occasion to remember and celebrate the women who gave us life, and the best kind of love there is – unconditional love. Who else but a mother accepts and embraces us despite all our shortcomings and loves us without any strings attached?
An American lady called Anna Jarvis was the one who founded Mother’s Day. She was a peace activist. She also cared for soldiers wounded in war and was involved in issues related to public health. When her mother died in 1905, she began a campaign for a day to honor and celebrate all mothers. By 1911, thanks to her efforts, the holiday was introduced in all American states. In 1914, the then President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation which said that the second Sunday in May would be observed as Mothers’ Day, and it would be a national holiday. Today, Mother’s Day 2020 is observed in most parts of the world.
Many people buy gifts for their mothers on this day. Usually, they choose to buy a dress, a watch, jewelry, and similar things. Some prefer to take her out for lunch or dinner. Others may bake a cake or throw a party for her. But what if your mother is someone who is spiritually inclined? Not to worry, there are many gift options for such mothers too.
