Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day?

There are varying opinions about the history of Mother’s Day, while some believe its origins go back to Ancient Greek myths about and celebrations for Rhea. Many believe that we owe the modern Mother’s Day to Anna Jarvis, an American teacher who started to organize commemoration activities with her students after she lost her beloved mother. Jarvis’s efforts to legitimize this day as the Mother’s Day in the USA were successful, later spreading to other countries.

When and how is Mother’s Day celebrated?

While some countries like the UK celebrate Mother’s Day on different dates, Mother’s Day is celebrated in the second Sunday of May in the USA and in Türkiye. To celebrate Mother’s Day, the children buy gifts for their mothers, as well as writing meaningful cards and trying to surprise their mothers. To celebrate Mother’s Day, you may make a huge array of gestures, from texting her a very emotional thank-you note to buying her surprising gifts like a ticket abroad!
