Mother’s Day is a day for many people to show their appreciation towards mothers and mother figures worldwide. It is an annual event but is held at different dates in the calendar, depending on the country.
This holiday was created in U.S. by Anna Jarvis in 1908. Six years later, it became an official U.S. holiday. Today Mother’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, and traditions vary depending on the country. Remarkably, Jarvis criticized later the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar.
