We all have very busy lives and it’s possible some of us have forgotten a very special day coming up! In case you have lost track of the days, it is Mothers Day this Sunday March 6th and you should be planning a special treat for your own Mam.
But why do we celebrate our Mams once a year, apart from the obvious reason that our Mams are the business! Well we took to mothersdaycelebration.com to see the origin of it:
“The origin of Mother’s Day goes back to the era of ancient Greek and Romans. But the roots of Mother’s Day history can also be traced in UK where a Mothering Sunday was celebrated much before the festival saw the light of the day in US. However, the celebration of the festival as it is seen today is a recent phenomenon and not even a hundred years old. Thanks to the hard work of the pioneering women of their times, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis that the day came into existence. Today the festival of Mothers day is celebrated across 46 countries (though on different dates) and is a hugely popular affair. Millions of people across the globe take the day as an opportunity to honour their mothers, thank them for their efforts in giving them life, raising them and being their constant support and well wisher.”
So there you go. If you haven’t gotten your Mam a gift or planned to take her out for a meal, it’s not too late!
