Motherhood is the most divine of the feelings which the mankind has ever got. But until as early as 100 years back there was no recognisition to this fact. It was the time a lady named Anna Jarvis thought of honoring her mom. In 1908 she organized a sermon in memory of her mother in a church in West Virginia, USA. She distributed her mother’s favorite flower, white carnations to the whole gathering. Later she convinced the politics to declare the second Sunday of May every year as “Mother’s Day”. It was in 1914 the then American president Woodrow Wilson signed a law recognizing second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day and a national holiday. A resolution was also passed, requiring government officials to wear white carnations on Mother’s Day.

After a few years, Anna Jarvis herself started criticizing the Mother’s Day due to its commercialization. People started giving greeting cards and flowers. It was a day to celebrate - have party and fun and give regards to the Mothers. In her last days Anna regretted the idea of starting the Mother’s Day as the original idea was lost.

However, with the changing times children are not bothered about the origin. They are more concerned about paying tribute to their mothers, express gratitude to the most beloved creature on this earth.
