International Mother`s Day

On May 14, 2023

About the event:

Mother is the main word for each of us, as well as the person behind it. We are completely dependent on our mother as children, and we come to her for advice when we grow up and finally understand: mom was right. The bond between mother and child is unbreakable and unshakable, like the power of love that unites them. It is not surprising that the world has its own, special days dedicated to mothers. They are held all over the world: in different countries, different dates are set for this. We will tell you when Mother's Day takes place in Russia and in the world in 2022, and how best to celebrate it.

More than 20 countries around the world celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May. Among them are the USA, Canada, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Turkey, Japan, Brazil and Australia. International Mother's Day in 2022 falls on May 8th.

History of Mother`s Day

Even the ancient Greeks had a mother cult: in March, in honor of Rhea, the progenitor of the gods, various mysteries took place. In Britain, the fourth Sunday of Lent was considered Mothering Sunday. In the XVII-XIX centuries, all the mothers of the country were congratulated on this day.

In the United States, one of the first to celebrate the holiday was Julia Ward Howe in 1872. At that time, this idea did not meet with support. But the initiative of her compatriot Anna Jarvis in 1907 found a response. Virginia became the first state in 1910. It was there that Mother's Day was celebrated for the first time. And 4 years later, by decision of US President Woodrow Wilson, it spread throughout the country.

How to celebrate Mother`s Day

Of course, on this day it is worth visiting the dearest person - mother, and it is better not empty-handed. After all, the meaning of the holiday is that we pay attention to our mothers. A gift or just a bouquet of flowers will certainly please mom.

Concerts, competitions, promotions, exhibitions are held all over the country. Mother's Day is especially loved in schools and kindergartens. Children are happy to tell poems about mothers, draw their portraits and make gifts with their own hands. In institutions, impromptu exhibitions are often held with photographs of employees and their parents.

Other countries also have their own holiday culture. In Great Britain and Ireland, for example, it is customary to cook a cake called "Simnel" on Mother's Sunday. This is a cake with pieces of dried fruits and candied fruits, spices, almond paste and marzipan.
