Mother’s Day 2019: A single day is never going to be enough to thank your mother for the love and commitment, but it is essential to acknowledge the same. (Designed by Gargi Singh)
Happy Mother’s Day 2019 Date: Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of every May to honour motherhood and pay homage to mothers who have and continue to inspire us all. It is believed that the bond between a mother and her child is the strongest, and Mother’s Day appreciates the same.
The contribution of a mother in the lives of her children is immense and though a single day is never going to be enough to thank her for the love and commitment, it is essential to acknowledge the same and make them feel special. On this occasion, a number of schools hold programmes involving students and their mothers. This year, the occasion falls on May 12.
Back in 1908, a lady named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia (where the International Mother’s Day Shrine is held) after her mother passed away in 1905. She earlier had started a campaign to recognise Mother’s Day as a holiday in the United States.
