When Is Mother's Day in 2020?
Mother’s Day is celebrated on an international scale to honour mothers and everything that they represent. The origin of this day traces back to the 1900s. An American woman named Anna Jarvis started a campaign for an official holiday to honour mothers in 1905. In 1914, this was finally recognised as an official holiday. President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation that stated the second Sunday of May to be celebrated as Mother’s Day.
Various cultures around the world have different days on which they observe Mother’s Day. In the UK, people observe Mother’s Day on the 4th Sunday of March. It is also known as Mothering Day. It is more of a Christian holiday than one decreed by law. In 2020, this day falls on the 22nd of March.
In India, USA, Australia and most countries across the globe, Mother’s Day is still observed on the second Sunday of May. This day, in 2020 falls on the 10th of May. This is not a religious holiday but a mother is believed to be the embodiment of God on earth. There is no reason why it shouldn’t be celebrated as one. Shower your mom with gifts and treat and do nice things for her. Remind her how much she means to you and make her feel special.
