Ultimately Mothers are in the first place in our hearts. Canadians celebrate Mother’s Day by showing their appreciation for mothers or mother figures. Mother’s Day in Canada is on the second Sunday of May each year, which falls on May 12 in 2019. Mother figures may include step-mothers, mothers-in-law, guardians, and family friends. Definitely it is the time to thank them for helping us through life’s challenges.

Celebrations of mothers and motherhood traces back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. In essence they held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. The history of Mother’s Day celebrations originates from Canada’s neighboring country, the United States. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908. As a result Mother’s Day became an official U.S. holiday in 1914.

Her mother was a social activist forming clubs to promote peace and friendship during the American Civil War (1861-65). Hence she was praying for a commemoration day to acknowledge the service mothers give to humanity. After her mother’s death, Jarvis spent the early years of the 20th century campaigning relentlessly. Eventually, Mother’s Day became a recognized holiday honoring all mothers.
