Mother's Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.

It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father's Day , Siblings Day , and Grandparents Day. The modern Mother's day began in the United States , at the initiative of Ann Reeves Jarvis in the early 20th century.

This is not directly related to the many traditional celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have existed throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele , the Roman festival of Hilaria , or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood.

Founder Jarvis herself regretted this commercialism and expressed views on how that was never her intention. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War , and created Mother's Day Work Clubs to address public health issues.

Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed a mother is "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world". In , the U. Congress rejected a proposal to make Mother's Day an official holiday, joking that they would also have to proclaim a "Mother-in-law's Day".

In , Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother's Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.

Although Jarvis was successful in founding Mother's Day, she became resentful of the commercialization of the holiday. By the early s, Hallmark Cards and other companies had started selling Mother's Day cards.

Jarvis believed that the companies had misinterpreted and exploited the idea of Mother's Day, and that the emphasis of the holiday was on sentiment, not profit. As a result, she organized boycotts of Mother's Day, and threatened to issue lawsuits against the companies involved. By this time, carnations had become associated with Mother's Day, and the selling of carnations by the American War Mothers to raise money angered Jarvis, who was arrested for disturbing the peace.

President Woodrow Wilson in his presidential proclamation, by the U. Congress in relevant bills, [19] [20] and by various U. While the United States holiday was adopted by some other countries, existing celebrations, held on different dates, honouring motherhood have become described as "Mother's Day", such as Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom [5] or, in Greece, the Eastern Orthodox celebration of the presentation of Jesus Christ to the temple 2 February of Julian Calendar.

Both the secular and religious Mother Day are present in Greece. In some countries, the date adopted is one significant to the majority religion, such as Virgin Mary Day in Catholic countries. Other countries selected a date with historical significance. For example, Bolivia's Mother's Day is the date of a battle in which women participated. Some ex-communist countries, such as Russia , celebrated International Women's Day instead of Mother's Day [23] or simply celebrate both holidays, which is the custom in Ukraine.

Kyrgyzstan has recently introduced Mother's Day, but "year on year [International Women's Day] is certainly increasing in status". Fourth Sunday in Lent Mothering Sunday. Armenia Motherhood and Beauty Day. South Korea Parents' Day. Mongolia together with Children's Day. Thailand birthday of Queen Sirikit. Belarus since [41]. Malawi Observed on 15 October or following work day. Baisakh [46] Amavasya Mata Tirtha Aunsi [47].

In most countries, Mother's Day is an observance derived from the holiday as it has evolved in the United States , promoted by companies who saw benefit in making it popular. In some cases, countries already had existing celebrations honoring motherhood, and their celebrations then adopted several external characteristics from the US holiday, such as giving carnations and other presents to one's mother. The extent of the celebrations varies greatly. In some countries, it is potentially offensive to one's mother not to mark Mother's Day.

In others, it is a little-known festival celebrated mainly by immigrants, or covered by the media as a taste of foreign culture. In Islam there is no concept of Mother's Day, but the Quran teaches that children should give priority to loving their mother over their father.

The holiday is observed on the new moon day in the month of Baisakh , i. This celebration is based on Hindu religion and it pre-dates the creation of the US-inspired celebration by at least a few centuries. In Buddhism , the festival of Ullambana is derived from the story of Maudgalyayana and his mother. Mother's day is celebrated in 8 March. The origin of 8 March holiday dates back to and is associated with a tragic event. A group of workers at a textile factory in New York strikes against extreme working conditions.

On 8 March, the factory was shut down and the workers remained trapped inside. Suddenly a fire broke out, where mothers died. Mother's Day in most Arab countries is celebrated on 21 March.

It was introduced in Egypt by journalist Mustafa Amin [53] and was first celebrated in The holiday was originally celebrated on 11 October, the old liturgical date for the celebration of the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary but after the Second Vatican Council , which moved the Virgin Mary festivity to 1 January, the Mother's Day started to be celebrated the third Sunday of October because of popular tradition.

The tradition of giving gifts to mothers on Mother's Day in Australia was started by Janet Heyden, [55] a resident of Leichhardt , Sydney, in She began the tradition during a visit to a patient at the Newington State Home for Women, where she met many lonely and forgotten mothers. To cheer them up, she rounded up support from local school children and businesses to donate and bring gifts to the women.

There are also many people who celebrate Mother's Day on 15 August instead; these are mostly people around Antwerp , who consider that day Assumption the classical Mother's Day and the observance in May an invention for commercial reasons. It was originally established on that day as the result of a campaign by Frans Van Kuyck , a painter and Alderman from Antwerp. In Bolivia , Mother's Day is celebrated on 27 May.

In this battle, women fighting for the country's independence were slaughtered by the Spanish army. It is not a public holiday, but all schools hold activities and festivities throughout the day.

When Mustafa Amin was arrested and imprisoned, there were attempts to change the name of the holiday from "Mother's Day" to "Family Day" as the government wished to prevent the occasion from reminding people of its founder. These attempts were unsuccessful and celebrations continued to be held on that day; classic songs celebrating mothers remain famous to this day.

It is recognized nationally, and is a public holiday. Usually some food, coffee and cakes are served for guests. The president of Finland honors with medals every year some mothers who have done something exceptional and positive during the year. In France , amidst alarm at the low birth rate, there were attempts in and to create a national celebration honoring the mothers of large families.

It was declared by the first President of Georgia Zviad Gamsakhurdia in order to replace the International Women Day, and it was officially approved by the Supreme Council in In the s, Germany had the lowest birthrate in Europe, and the declining trend was continuing.

This was attributed to women's participation in the labor market. At the same time, influential groups in society politicians of left and right, churchwomen, and feminists believed that mothers should be honored but could not agree on how to do so.

However, all groups strongly agreed on the promotion of the values of motherhood. In , this resulted in the unanimous adoption of Muttertag , the Mother's Day holiday as imported from America [ citation needed ] and Norway.

The head of the Association of German Florists cited "the inner conflict of our Volk and the loosening of the family" as his reason for introducing the holiday. He expected that the holiday would unite the divided country. In , the Mother's Day Committee joined the task force for the recovery of the volk , and the holiday stopped depending on commercial interests and began emphasizing the need to increase the population in Germany by promoting motherhood. The holiday was then seen as a means to encourage women to bear more children, which nationalists saw as a way to rejuvenate the nation.

The holiday did not celebrate individual women, but an idealized standard of motherhood. The progressive forces resisted the implementation of the holiday because it was backed by so many conservatives, and because they saw it as a way to eliminate the rights of working women. Die Frau , the newspaper of the Federation of German Women's Associations, refused to recognize the holiday. Many local authorities adopted their own interpretation of the holiday: The guidelines for the subsidies had eugenics criteria, but there is no indication that social workers ever implemented them in practice, and subsidies were given preferentially to families in economic need rather than to families with more children or "healthier" children.

With the Nazi party in power during —, the situation changed radically. From the position of the German Nazi government, the role of mothers was to give healthy children to the German nation. The Nazi party's intention was to create a pure "Aryan race" according to nazi eugenics.

Among other Mother's Day ideas, the government promoted the death of a mother's sons in battle as the highest embodiment of patriotic motherhood. This created conflicts with other organizations that resented Nazi control of the holiday, including Catholic and Protestant churches and local women's organizations.

Local authorities resisted the guidelines from the Nazi government and continued assigning resources to families who were in economic need, much to the dismay of the Nazi officials. In , the government began issuing an award called Mother's Cross Mutterkreuz , according to categories that depended on the number of children a mother had.

It was first celebrated in by the Hungarian Red Cross Youth. The modern Mother's Day has been assimilated into Indian culture, [73] and it is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May.

The fact that the holiday was originally imported from the US was seen as evidence of an attempt at imposing capitalism and materialism in Mexican society. They concluded that the government's long-term goal was to cause women to abandon their traditional roles at home in order to spiritually weaken men. The government sought to counter these claims by organizing widespread masses and asking religious women to assist with the state-sponsored events in order to "depaganize" them.

Previously, the tradition was observed primarily by the Newar community and other people living in the Kathmandu Valley. Now this festival is widely celebrated across the country. Many tragic folklore legends have been created, suggesting different reasons why this pond became a pilgrimage site.

The most popular version says that, in ancient times, the mother of a shepherd died, and he made offerings to a nearby pond. There he saw the face of his mother in the water, with her hand taking the offerings.

Since then, many people visited the pond, hoping to see their deceased mother's face. Pilgrims believe that they will bring peace to their mothers' souls by visiting the sacred place. There are two ponds. The larger one is for ritual bathing. The smaller one is used to "look upon mother's face", and is fenced by iron bars to prevent people from bathing in it. Traditionally, in the Kathmandu valley the South-Western corner is reserved for women and women-related rituals, and the North-Eastern is for men and men-related rituals.

The worship place for Mata Tirtha Aunsi is located in Mata Tirtha in the South-Western half of the valley, while the worship place for Gokarna Aunsi , the equivalent celebration for deceased fathers, is located in Gokarna, Nepal , in the North-Eastern half. This division is reflected in many aspects of the life in Kathmandu valley.

In the mids the slogan Moederdag — Bloemendag Mother's Day — Flowers' Day was coined, and the phrase was popular for many years.

This holiday has its roots in the church and was originally unrelated to the American holiday.

As a result of the influence of the American Mother's Day, Mothering Sunday transformed into the tradition of showing appreciation to one's mother. The holiday is still recognized in the original historical sense by many churches , with attention paid to Mary the mother of Jesus Christ and the concept of the Mother Church. The custom was still popular by the start of the 19th century, but with the Industrial Revolution , traditions changed and the Mothering Day customs declined.

Some Mothering Sunday traditions were revived, such as the tradition of eating cake on that day, although celebrants now eat simnel cake [27] instead of the cakes that were traditionally prepared at that time.

Side note, Columbus also has one of the first and largest queer burlesque groups. Why did you make Northampton so far from Boston? Why are your public high schools in Cambridge and Somerville so sad?

And pray tell where then do the lesbian families with kids in HS flee to in your leafy, clinging suburbs?! Preferably east of the 95, please and thank you, but there are no rules in love and war, nor are there in real estate.

I really, really, really love this post. It might just be my favorite. Everyone suggests Brookline but nobody is willing to give us an extra couple of hundred thousand dollars! Do you feel Newton is less expensive than Lexington it seems like it? Nonantum and Newtonville are reasonably affordable for their proximity to Boston, as well http: With regards to North—which I absolutely adored —it has very strong theatre, arts, and sports programs, as well as a plethora of advanced-placement courses to choose from despite recent budget cuts the language department is also particularly strong and offers French, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin, and American Sign Language.

I found it extremely inclusive and progressive. Also, the principal is queer! Did I mention the building is new and eco-friendly? It sounds like a really lovely school. Therefore, the elementary school districts that feed into North are Burr, Cabot, Horace Mann, Lincoln-Eliot, Peirce, Ward, and Williams since the last time I checked —houses near those schools should be in the North district.

You can check which school district your address is in using http: However, if you live within a mile radius of a high school not in your assigned district happened to me , you can request to attend the closer one. I would say that within a mile of anywhere you choose to live in the North district, you will find a supermarket, at least two coffeeshops, and ice cream shop, great restaurants, a park, a pharmacy, and some sort of community education building.

Porter Square is nice. Some good Cambridge zip codes to search are and Have you thought about Arlington? The Massachusetts Avenue strip through Arlington is bustling with an historic movie theater and restaurants. Things were a little crazy in the 90s I hear but it has seriously become an awesome school. The arts program, for example, was recognized as comparable in quality to that of a private school. Matt Damon went there. We need to be close to our friends and work in Boston!

Have you looked at Sharon? It also has a cheap movie theater! I was near Mills College. Yes, that area is mostly neighborhoods both nice and not very and a crumbly strip fairly far from the more accessible hubs closer to downtown.

All of those areas are super walkable, bikeable, and within a mile or two of a BART station, more or less. I lived in Oakland, right on Lake Merritt. It was decently good. I walked in the dark a lot with pepper spray, ha! It feels safe to me. It kinda sucks to not have a car, but most everything I need is within walking or biking distance, including the BART. I live in a so-so area of Oakland, sort of near Mills college. I moved to Oakland awhile ago and for a long time hated it and wanted to go back to the city.

In Oakland, you have to use the freeway to get to a lot of places. I really like the areas near the lake, grand ave and piedmont ave.

I think all in all Oakland gets a bad rap. When I first moved here I was shocked at how many of my clients were super super rich. Anyways sorry for the giant paragraph……. And TONS of beautiful parks! The weather and really beautiful, natural diversity alone make it no contest.

I hope to see you there! It will always have a place in my heart though because it was the first club I ever went too probably because they are one of the only places that let under 21s in. I'm seriously just going to do this for fun guys.

And most of your statistics positively reek of a white demographic. Have things really changed so little since I was coming up? Chicagostraddlers are a very diverse group of queers in many aspects, race included.

Most of the places I go in Chicago, there is a good crowd of queers of color. So proud that Columbus made it to In addition to the things mentioned above, it seems relevant to mention that this fair city is also awesome at dive bars and delicious food. There is so much grilled cheese, you guys. People might hate the Cowtown moniker, but this city truly excels at coating things in dairy.

Yes, I just spent the last ten minutes of my work day figuring out an appropriate cheese-related pun. We also have the biggest Outfest in the nation. My best friend is in the picture for Ann Arbor, MI. We went to the coming out rally this year on the Diag! Totally agree with Aunnica.

And attractiveness is not guaranteed. The census is skewed towards residents and people who share households, I think. The Gayborhood is around James Madison Park. Whenever I see ladies with alternative lifestyle haircuts holding hands at the farmers market I want to ask them to be my friends.

I, for one, have hair that one might call kinda moppy, and I would love if people would ask me to be friends! What small town in Norcal? I lived in Eurkea and it had a fair amount of hippy types. The hippy types are still there. I spent a lot of time growing up in a tiny redneck town in the Sierras. The nearest city of any appreciable size was Fresno and that was over an hour away. Much of my time was spent fervently swearing never to live in a rural area again.

Are there special Lezzy college grants and scholarships I can apply to? Oh my god, Tucson. I went there with my friend to visit her family two weeks ago and it was so gay! And I got hit on! By a cute girl! I never get hit on in SD, so it was a super big deal for me. Good for you guys! SO there are legit more gay girls in the Boston area than there are men, period? Can we still write about a city if it made it to the lower ranks of this list? Ugh, the Mudhens representing Seattle?

They are actually from the Eastside, and us Breakers actually represent Seattle. We are gayer, and we beat them in every match. The Breakers wish they were as gay and sexy as us. And for the record we beat the Breakers last spring.

SO glad that Austin is on here. Unfortunately, I think lesbian bar here is ehhh…. Ah, and I also lived in Ft. This is why I need to move back to Portland, or at least get the hell out of the place where I currently live.

Why so much hating on Houston? I think my parents telling me what The Flame was was one of the first times I ever heard about homosexuality. That bar was mainly women, but when women danced close they would actually come up and tell us to back off. They would let the few men grind away on the dance floor, though. I preferred The Flame, a great gay dive bar.

It would probably help if I knew where the gay bars around here were. There is nothing specifically gay in the Thrill esp. I guess I kind of take extreme queer saturation of a city for granted, since I live in the bay area…. Also locals call it Menver, and the disproportionate male population includes the LGBT population which is dominated by gay males. Sorry to be so blunt but you sound really horrible.

I just got ridiculously excited that you used one of my photos in this article Fruit Fest in Madison. And yes, Madison is super queer friendly. I know MeFi has a thing where you put in your coordinates and it brings up Mefites near your area. Gender identity is protected in dane county, which is where Madison is located.

It wasn’t all hard work though. Often people would gather together to help with the work and with them they’d bring whiskey and music. Out of these Appalachian hollows came the fiddle and banjo music, which would later transform in Nashville to what is known today as country music.
