History Of Mother's Day
The origin of Mother's Day dates back to the early 1900s when a woman named Anna Jarvis in the US made efforts to dedicate a day for mothers across the world. It was in the year 1905 when Anna lost her mother.
In 1908, she organised a prayer meeting for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. It is in this memorial only when Anna decided to dedicate a day for observing Mother's Day. But this was rejected in the same year by the US officials. But then the proposal was accepted in the year 1911 to express gratitude to mothers across the world.
However, it was in the year 1914, when Woodrow Wilson, the President of the US declared the second Sunday in the month of May as Mother's Day. The day was also declared as a public holiday after the President signed a proclamation. Since then the day is celebrated as Mother's Day across the world.
