The Origins of Mother's Day
Mother's Day is a public holiday in honor of mothers and motherhood.Mother's Day is an American invention, and it is not directly descended from the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years and which are often rooted in older traditions.
It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March, April, or May. The United States, Canada and Australia celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May (11 May in 2014). Great Britain and Ireland celebrate Mothering Sunday, which falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent (30 March in 2014).
