Significance of Mother's Day 2022

Mother's Day is a holiday celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May. It is a day that commemorates motherhood and appreciates all mothers and mother-figures (including grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, and foster mothers) as well as their contribution to society. 

History of Mother's Day

The History of Mother's Day 2022 dates back to the 19th century, when women's peace groups in United States of America often tried to establish holidays and regular activities in favour of peace and against war. A common regular activity was the meeting of groups of mothers whose sons had fought or died in the American Civil War. 

In 1868, Ann Jarvis, created a committee to establish a "Mother's Friendship Day" in order to reunite families that had been divided during the Civil War. There were several limited observances in the 1870s and the 1880s but none achieved recognition beyond that. At the time, Protestant schools in the United States already held many celebrations and In New York City, Julia Ward Howe led an anti-war observance (Mother's Day for Peace) on June 2, 1872 which was accompanied by a holiday nowadays known as Mother's Day Proclamation. 

Traditions of Mother's Day 2022

As a part of Mother's Day 2022 traditions, children send cards or gifts to their mother or mother figure or make a special effort to visit her. They take their mothers out for a festive lunch or dinner to show their gratitude. Some children even go all the way to cook their mothers large and elaborate dinners, thus giving their mothers a break from preparing food for the family.
