Our Mother’s Special Day

Mother’s Day is an annual occasion that celebrates motherhood. Mother’s day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May; this year it will be held on May 9th. The history of this day may not be known to every single person, but it’s not too late to learn. Anna Jarvis created what the Americans know as Mother’s Day in 1908 but didn’t become a national holiday until 1914. Mothers are celebrated throughout history even dating back to ancient Greece and Rome. They held festivals to celebrate the goddesses Rhea and Cybele who were mother goddesses. Mothering Sunday was a festival celebrated by early Christians in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe. This occasion faded when Mother’s Day became popular in the 1930s and 1940s. 

There are the classic gifts; traditionally being flowers, a handmade card which makes it more heartfelt, and may even gift candy/chocolates. A Mother’s Day gift is selected based on the different things one’s mother likes. It may range from plants, coffee, baked goods, movies, and a long list of more wonderful things that any mother would love. It may not truly matter what the gift is as long as it was given/made by the mother’s kid(s). 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so Valor Dictus sent out a survey to the students relating on the topic of Mother’s Day.

The results of the survey may be what the majority of people expect. Making a card by hand is known to be more sentimental. Based on a poll voters seem to feel the same way and would rather make a card then buy one. The data that was collected shows that most families hang out together  as a whole to celebrate Mother’s Day instead of spending time one on one with their mother. 

Each mother should be celebrated on this holiday. As Mother’s Day comes closer there are many gifts that could be bought. Since this goes without saying Mother’s Day is for your mom, so make sure she has a wonderful day.
