Mother's Day in the world is celebrated in different parts of the world with great enthusiasm on different dates. In the UK, it is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in the month of March. However, in India, this prestigious day is celebrated every year on Sunday of the second week of May.
Hence, this year, we are going to celebrate Mother's Day on 10th May from our home amid COVID-19 lockdown. Despite this lockdown, this day has not lost its importance at all.
Importance of Mother's Day
The importance of mothers in our life needs no mention. Our lives and upbringing are only possible due to their presence both intrinsically and extrinsically. Their unconditional love and selfless behavior play a key role in our upbringing. Hence, in an effort to celebrate them, every year in India and across the world, a day is dedicated just to them.
History of Mother's Day
The roots of Mother's Day can be traced back to the 20th century when a lady called Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother who passed away in 1905. She held the memorial at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Moreover, she was the same woman who started the campaign to observe Mother's Day as a National Holiday in the United States of America.
Her efforts were continuously defeated but she didn't lose hope and finally in 1941, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation and declared the second Sunday of May as National Holiday to honor mothers across the United States of America. Soon, this holy idea spread across the world, and Nations started observing a National Holiday in the honor of mothers on different dates.
5 Ways to make your Mother feel Special in this Lockdown
1. Bake a Cake
Search online and go for a fantastic recipe to bake a cake at your home. Your tiny and small efforts will be surely appreciated by your mom.
Remember one thing, buying a cake won't make your mother feel much special as much a cake baked by you. Moreover, there is lockdown across the world, you can't buy one. Hence, don't make an excuse and bake it.
2. Breakfast in Bed
We can't even remember the count of the food prepared by our mother. Hence, on this auspicious day, wake up early, cook your mother's favorite meal, and serve it to your mother without her notice. In this way, you will appreciate the efforts she makes while preparing food for you daily.
3. Movies Back to Back
In this lockdown situation, you can't go out with your mom to celebrate Mother's Day. At least, with some delicious food, enjoy a movie marathon, and a brand new tv series with your mom.
4. Pampering Time
Your mother works 365 days without any leave. Hence, on this Mother's Day, book a spa session or manicure/pedicure for your mom at your home through Urban Clap and other online platforms you are comfortable with.
