Today, the second Sunday of May, is International Mother’s Day. The day is celebrated every year on this day of May. As such, today (14 May) this day is being celebrated in almost all countries of the world including Bangladesh.

Anna Jarvis established the Mother’s Day International Association in 1912 and popularized the terms ‘second Sunday in May’ and ‘Mother’s Day’. Today reminds us of the importance, significance and meaning of motherhood and motherhood and the main purpose and meaning of our walk on earth.

According to one group, the day originated from the practice of mother worship in ancient Greece where a festival was held in honor of Sibel, a prominent goddess among the Greek gods. The festival was celebrated in Asia Minor at the time of the equinox and then in Rome between the Ides of March (March 15) and March 18.

The ancient Romans had another holiday dedicated to the goddess Juno called Matronalia, although gifts were given to mothers on that day.

There have long been rituals in Europe and the UK, such as Mothering Sunday, where a specific Sunday is set aside to honor mothers and motherhood. The observance of Mothering Sunday is part of the calendar of many Christian denominations, including Anglican. According to the Catholic calendar, it is called Letare Sunday, which is observed on the fourth Sunday during Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary or Virgin Mother and the “main church”. The day was traditionally marked by the giving of symbolic gifts and by having someone else in the household take over the girls’ chores such as cooking and washing in gratitude.

Julia Ward Hoey’s ‘Mother’s Day Proclamation’ is one of the earliest attempts to celebrate Mother’s Day in the United States. Written in 1870, Hoey’s Mother’s Day Proclamation was a pacifist response to the atrocities of the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. Hoi’s feminist beliefs were implicit in the Declaration.
