Mother’s Day Special – May 2018

It’s that time of year again, Mother’s Day, when we are supposed to doff our hats to our mum’s, bring them brekkies in bed or spoil them. Should it not be an every day occurence? Honouring the woman who brought us into this world, gave us life and nurtured us until we could conquer the world by ourselves? Let’s look at where Mother’s Day originates from.

While Mother’s Day can be traced back to ancient civilisations, the modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908. The US Congress refused to make it an official holiday stating that they would then have to make another holiday for mother-in-laws. Anna Jarvis however did not take no for an answer and by 1911 all of the states in the US were observing Mother’s Day. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson – then US President – signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.
