Celebrating Mothers Around the World – International Mother’s Day

“The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation.” – James E. Faust

Mother’s Day is an annual occasion celebrated around the world to honour and appreciate the incredible contributions of mothers and mother figures in everyone’s lives. It is a day dedicated to express love, gratitude, and respect for the selfless individuals who have played a significant role in nurturing, guiding, and supporting us.

The History of Mother’s Day

The origins of Mother’s Day can be dated back to ancient times when various cultures celebrated motherhood and maternal figures. The modern concept of Mother’s Day has its roots in the efforts of Anna Jarvis, an American social activist. In 1908, Anna organised the first official Mother’s Day celebration to commemorate her own mother’s dedication and advocate for the recognition of mothers all around.

Celebrating Motherhood

Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate motherhood in all its forms. It’s a time to express appreciation to our mothers, grandmothers, stepmothers, and mother figures for their love, guidance and care. Whether it’s through heartfelt gestures, kind words, or thoughtful gifts, they are aimed to make mothers feel cherished and valued. Mother’s Day, celebrated on the second Sunday of May in many countries, is a time to acknowledge the crucial role mothers play in shaping individuals and society as a whole. It is a day to honour their sacrifices, unconditional love, and unwavering support.

Ideas for Spreading Joy on Mother’s Day

Certainly! Below are few ideas for spreading joy on the occasion of Mother’s Day:

  • Handmade Gifts: Create a heartfelt and personalised gift for your mother. It could be as simple as a  handwritten letter, a scrapbook of memories, or even a handmade craft.
  • Breakfast in Bed: Surprise your mother with a delicious homemade breakfast served to her in bed. Plan and prepare her favourite dishes and  try to add a personal touch with a handwritten note or flower.
  • Quality Time: Dedicate the entire day to spending quality time with your mother. Plan activities such as going for a walk,  having a picnic, watching her favourite movie, or playing board games together.
  • Pamper Session: Treat your mother to a day of relaxation and self-care. Arrange a spa day at home with scented candles, a massage. Offer to do her hair, nails, or makeup if she enjoys it.
  • Outdoor Adventure: Plan an outdoor adventure that your mother would enjoy. It could be a picnic in the park, a visit to a botanical garden, or even a leisurely bike ride.
  • Surprise Party: Organise a  gathering with close family and friends to surprise your mother. Decorate the house, prepare her favourite food, and invite loved ones to share in the joyous occasion.
  • Act of Service: Show your appreciation by taking care of household chores and tasks for the day. Clean the house, cook meals, do the laundry or run errands, allowing your mother to relax the whole day.
  • Virtual Celebration: If you can’t be with your mother in person, try and organise a virtual celebration. Set up a video call and involve other family members who may be far away. Play games, share stories, and express your love and gratitude towards your mother.
  • Plant a Garden: Help your mother start a small garden or tend to her existing one. Spend the day planting flowers, herbs, or vegetables together, and create a beautiful outdoor space that she can enjoy.
  • Random Acts of Kindness: Encourage your mother to participate in random acts of kindness with you. Perform small acts of kindness throughout the day, such as giving compliments, helping strangers, or donating to a charity in her name.
