Mother's Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, mother ties and the impact of mothers on society. It is celebrated in many parts of the world, mostly in March or May, on various days. It completes 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 beginning of the 20th century with the initiative of Anna Jarvis. This is not (directly) many traditional celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have existed in the world for thousands of years, such as Greek cult, related Cybele, Rhea Grandmother of the Gods, Roman festival Hilaria or Christian Mothers Sunday celebrations (originally not motherhood, the Main Church memorial service). However, in some countries Mother's Day is still synonymous with these ancient traditions.
The modern version of Mother's Day derived from the USA has been criticized for being very commercialized. Founder Jarvis himself regretted this commercialization and expressed his views that this was never his intention.
