A word about Mother’s Day:
The sudden death and subsequent funeral obsequies of Ann Reeves Jarvis in 1905, was although usual like others but her daughter Anna Jarvis took it upon herself to pay tribute to her loving mom and began commemorating her death and calling it “Mother’s Day”.
Her campaign to allocate a day as “Mother’s Days” took off just after that and it got countrywide recognition when she had the first prayer meeting at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church, Grafton, West Virginia in 1908.
Her relentless campaign did have some lighter moments when the bill went to the United States Congress and one member suggested that it would be appropriate, to allocate “Mother-in-law’s Day” as well and the bill was rejected.
The campaign did have the blessings of the people and sanity prevailed when President Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation in 1914 declaring the “Second Sunday of May” as “Mother’s Day” which is now a day of celebration with all mothers joining in.
Today “Mother’s day” is celebrated in more than 40 countries worldwide and has commercialized the day and many items are sold to propagate the day as a day of Joy for mothers and family too.
The dates of celebrations would be different in different countries due to various reasons and also as it is not an internationally declared day hence the varying dates.
There is a very strong lobby which is trying to unify the dates and recognize it as one day of the year but that has still not come to pass and it will soon.
That is the hope of everyone who has been benefiting commercially from it and looking at it from that perspective it would be healthy for the world economy too, apart from whatever anyone might say.
