Last year Mother’s Day was May 14 but still on Sunday. It's still nice to celebrate events and occasion on a Sunday, hopefully ever love body is free to celebrate.

Mother’s Day is celebrated in many ways in different countries and in different cultures. Here in our country, the Philippines, we make sure we celebrate this occasion with family and friends. Our mothers are very special and i believe we do not have to tell you why. We Filipinos are known for having close family ties so I'm sure this coming Sunday mall, restaurants, and other passional will be full of people celebrating the occasion. Mother's Day is officially celebrated on the second Sunday of May. If you check your calendar that will fall on May 13, 2018. It is not a public holiday but celebrating it on a Sunday gives the same feel of a holiday, so it’s quite good enough. It is not a traditional Filipino holiday. The occasion was passed to us or inherited from the Americans during the American Colonial Period.

According to a 2008 article by the Philippine News Agency, in 1921 the Ilocos Norte Federation of Women's Clubs asked to declare the first Monday of December as Mother's Day "to honor these fabulous women who brought forth God's children into this world." In response, Governor-General Charles Yeater issued Circular No. 33 declaring the celebration. In 1937 President Manuel L. Quezon issued Presidential Proclamation No. 213, changing the name of the occasion from "Mother's Day" to "Parent's Day" to address the complaints that there wasn't a "Father's Day". In 1980 President Ferdinand Marcos issued Presidential Proclamation No. 2037 proclaiming the date as both Mother's Day and Father's Day. In 1988 President Corazon Aquino issued Presidential Proclamation No. 266, changing Mother's Day to the second Sunday of May, and Father's Day to the third Sunday of June, discontinuing the traditional date. [112] In 1998 President Joseph Estrada returned both celebrations to the first Monday of December.[111]

History

Mother’s Day celebration has been link to religious beliefs and can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. They celebrated festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. Their example of motherhood has been a guide to romans and an inspiration to uphold the mothers unconditional love and sacrifice.  Today,the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.”

It is a festival celebrated by Catholic and Protestant Christians in some parts of Europe. It is observed and practiced in many parishes of the Church of England, including many Anglican parishes all over the world, especially in Canada and Australia.

It was Once a major tradition in the United Kingdom and some parts of Europe, it was celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent and was originally described as a time when observers would return to their “mother church” or the main church in the vicinity of their home for a special service.

As time goes by the Mothering Sunday tradition shifted into a more secular or non- religious holiday, and children would give their mothers with flowers, gifts and other tokens of appreciation. This custom eventually faded in popularity so it merged with the American Mother’s Day in the 1930s and 1940s.

Mother’s Day around the world

United states

The Philippines was once a colony of the United States so it is best to describe this events in our article. We obviously inherited mother’s day from them but we won’t be too specific, we just want highlight a few points for the sake of education.

First is Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia. The origins of Mother’s Day as celebrated in the United States date back to the 19th century. In the years before the Civil War, Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia helped start “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs” to teach local women how to properly care for their children

Second is Julia Ward Howe. Another predecessor to Mother’s Day came from the abolitionist and suffragette Julia Ward Howe. In 1870 she wrote the “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” a campaign that asked mothers to unite in promoting world peace. In 1873 Howe campaigned for a “Mother’s Peace Day” to be celebrated every June 2.

Third is Juliet Calhoun Blakely. She was one of the earlyMother’s Day pioneers. Juliet Calhoun Blakely, a temperance activist who inspired a local Mother’s Day in Albion, Michigan, in the 1870s.

Finally, is the duo of Mary Towles Sasseen and Frank Hering, both worked to organize a Mothers’ Day in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The origins of Mother’s Day in the United States is a bit unclear but is very important in the acceptance of the tradition.

China

The Chinese agrees that Mother’s Day came from the united states but since they have nothing against the tradition, they celebrate it. It was released in the People's Daily, is is the Chinese government's official newspaper, an article explained that "despite originating in the United States, people in China accept the holiday without hesitation because it is in line with the country's traditional ethics, respect for the elderly and filial piety towards parents.

So Mother's Day is becoming more popular in China. Carnations and flower bouquet and flower arrangement are a very popular Mother's Day gift and the most sold flowers in relation to the day. In 1997 Mother's Day was set as the day to help poor mothers and to remind people of the poor mothers in rural areas such as China's western region.

In recent years, an advocacy was made by the Communist Party member Li Hanqiu. He began to advocate for the official adoption of Mother's Day in memory of Meng Mu, the mother of Mèng Zǐ. He formed a non-governmental organization called Chinese Mothers' Festival Promotion Society, with the support of 100 Confucian scholars and lecturers of ethics. Li and the Society want to replace the Western-style gift of carnations with lilies, which, in ancient times, were planted by Chinese mothers when children left home. Mother's Day remains an unofficial festival, except in a small number of cities.

To our friends and family in china may we suggest the following:

Brazil

In Brazil, much like the Philippines, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. On 12 May 1918, The first Mother's Day in Brazil was promoted by Associação Cristã de Moços de Porto Alegre (Young Men's Christian Association of Porto Alegre) . In 1932, then President Getúlio Vargas made the second Sunday of May the official date for Mother's Day. In 1947, Thanks to Archbishop Jaime de Barros Câmara, Cardinal-Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, because he decided that this holiday would also be included in the official calendar of the Catholic Church

Unfortunately, even with the help of Cardinal-Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro , Mother's Day is not an official holiday , but it is widely observed and generally involves spending time with family and friends and of course giving gifts to one's mother. Because of this, it is considered one of the celebrations most related to consumerism in the country, second only to Christmas Day as the most commercially lucrative and money making holiday.
