  • hi friends Happy Mothers day to all Mothers

    today i will tell why we celebrate Mothers day

    In early Mothers day activity was the meeting of groups of mothers whose sons had fought or died on opposite sides of the American Civil War.
    In 1868 Ann Jarvis created a committee to establish a "Mother's Friendship Day" whose purpose was "to reunite families that had been divided during the Civil War", and she wanted to expand it into an annual memorial for mothers,
    in the early 1880s, the Methodist Episcopal Church in Albion set aside the second Sunday in May to recognize the special contributions of mothers.

    Mother's Day was established by Anna Marie Jarvis, following the death of her mother Ann Jarvis on May 9, 1905, with the help of a Philadelphia merchant called John Wanamaker

    From may 9 , 1905
