In the United States, International Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. The holiday was first celebrated in 1908 in New York City. It was started by Anna Jarvis, who wanted to honour her own mother and all mothers. She created Mother’s Day Work Clubs dedicated to helping poor mothers who had lost their children.

In recent times the day has been set aside to honour the efforts, dedication, and hard work of all mothers around the world. On this day, people give gifts to their mothers, take them out for a special meal, or just share quality time together.

In the United Kingdom, International Mother’s Day is usually celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent. This day is also known as Mothering Sunday, which is a traditional celebration of mothers. 

There are endless ways to show your appreciation, from a heartfelt card or letter to a special gift. Many families choose to spend the day with their mother, cooking a special meal, going for a walk, or just spending quality time with each other.

No matter how you choose to celebrate Mothering Sunday, it’s important to recognize all of the hard work that mothers do on a daily basis. It’s a day to be grateful for the love and support that mothers provide and to take a moment to show your appreciation.
