It goes without saying that all of us love our mothers, don’t we?
They are the angels that have given us the gift of life and launched us into this world. After carrying us within them for nine long months, they have raised us and cared for us like no one else. The very fact that we exist on this beautiful planet today is because of our mothers. And right from our upbringing, to our education and everything that we can possibly think about – we owe them all to our dearest mothers.
To commemorate and celebrate our mothers and all that they have done and sacrificed for our betterment, countries, and cultures all across the globe have dedicated one day in the year. On this one day every year, we celebrate that one and only woman in our lives – our mothers, and especially in regard to all that they do for us every single day. This special day has been set aside purely with the intention of making her feel special, to celebrate the most special bond of all.
It will not be wrong to say that Mothers Day is perhaps the only day when we can actually force them to be treated like the queen.
What day is Mother’s Day 2018?
This celebration of Mother’s Day is something that all the countries in our world have celebrated since ages. And some of the traditions can even be traced long back to almost the 16th century. So you can well imagine how many mothers have been honoured over the centuries! In some of the earliest traditions of Mother’s Day celebrations, apprentices and servants were granted leaves from their duties so that they could visit their mothers at their homes and treat them with surprises and gifts.
Now when it comes to selecting a particular day to celebrate this special bond, you might be surprised to know that not all countries celebrate Mother’s Day on a fixed date. The fact is that different countries have their own special days which they commemorate as Mother’s Day.
For instance, Mother’s Day is celebrated on every second Sunday of May in the United States of America. This has been the trend for the USA all throughout and falls on the same day like what many of the other countries also observe as Mother’s Day.
So going by the US standards, Mother’s Day is on the 13th of May this year that is 2018.
However, in some countries, this date has been adjusted to suit their religious priorities or even according to historical significances.
For example, in most of the Arabian countries, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the 21st of March, which marks Spring Equinox. Again, in the United Kingdom and Ireland, Mother’s Day is usually celebrated on the fourth Sunday during Lent. This is referred to as Mothering Sunday in those countries, which is usually celebrated during the month of March, three weeks prior to Easter Sunday.
