What is the significance of Mother’s Day?

The history of Mother’s Day dates back to 1908 when it was first celebrated in the United States. It was initiated by a woman named Anna Jarvis to commemorate her mother after her death.

Three years after her death, Anna arranged a memorial for her mother at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in West Virginia. Although she didn’t attend the memorial herself, she sent 500 white carnations and sent out telegrams to the people who attended the memorial.

Following that, celebrating and honouring mothers worldwide became a ritual, and individual countries started doing the same.

Knowing the Happy Mother’s Day date in 2022 isn’t enough. You need to plan how to make that day memorable for your mother. While everyone’s way of celebrating the day varies, we thought we’d give you some ideas to implement in the celebration.

Pamper your mother

Mothers are selfless beings who consistently prioritize our needs before hers. On Mother’s Day, surprise her with a day dedicated to herself. Book her a spa appointment, shower her with her favorite gifts and food and give her a break from her routine.

Express your love

As Indians, we often fail to let our parents know how much they mean to us. It’s time we express that love and let our mothers know the kind of importance they hold in our lives. Tell her you love her and thank her for all that she has done for you to date.

Shower her with gifts

Although our mothers deserve a gift every day for their selfless contributions, there’s nothing wrong with spoiling them with gifts on a particular day. Shower her with meaningful and valuable gifts that she’d appreciate and need.
