History of International Mother’s Day
The modern celebration of Mother’s Day is connected with two women’s – Anna Jarvis and Julia Ward Howe. In 1870, Julia Ward Howe called for International Mother’s Day to be celebrated every year. Under her sponsorship, Mother’s Day continued to be held in Boston for nearly ten years. Some sources also state that Juliet Calhoun Blakely started Mother’s Day in Albion, Michigan, in the late 1800s. Her sons paid tribute to her each year and urged others to honour their mothers.
Anna Jarvis in 1907 held a private Mother’s Day celebration to honour her Mother, Ann Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia. She also played a crucial role in 1908 to arrange a church service which attracted 407 children and their mother’s. In 1912, Mother’s Day International Association was formed to promote the Mother’s Day in other countries. From then, the day was grown popularly all around the world. Nowadays, it is celebrated in several countries like UK, India, US, China, Mexico, Italy, Denmark, Finland, Australia, Turkey, Canada, Belgium and Japan. People around the world celebrate this day with great excitement and joy by creating several activities to pay tribute to their lovely mothers.
