Every day is mother’s day, every week is mother’s week, every month is mother’s month, and every year is mother’s year. Then why would we celebrate a particular day to show our love and gratitude for our mothers? Well, the answer to that is very simple. We all live quite busy lives and to be honest, even when we say that every day is mother’s day, we don’t actually make it one. And that’s why we have a day dedicated solely to our mothers. On this day, we are obliged to take our time out from our hectic lives and spend a little more time with them. And since mother’s day 2018 is right around the corner, we thought it would be a great idea to suggest you give some of the best ways to surprise your mother and make her day even better and full of love. Read along!
When is Mother’s Day?
Mother’s Day is a festival respecting the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the impact of mothers in society. This day is celebrated around the globe on the second Sunday of the month. This makes May 13th, 2018 a Mother’s day this year.
Mother’s Day History
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be followed back to the old Greeks and Romans, who held festivals out of appreciation for the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, however, the clearest present-day point of reference for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.”
Once a noteworthy custom in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe, this festival fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent and was initially seen as a period when the devoted would come back to their “mother church”— the fundamental church in the region of their home—for a special service.
After some time the Mothering Sunday convention shifted into a more secular holiday, and youngsters would present their mothers with flowers and different tokens of appreciation. This custom in the long run blurred in fame before converging with the American Mother’s Day in the 1940s.
And here is a rare fact about Mother’s Day that you should know,
“More phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year. These holiday chats with Mom often cause phone traffic to spike by as much as 37 percent.”

How to celebrate Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is not just about gifts or cards, it is more than that. Mother’s Day is about showing you care. It is about showing your mothers how much you love them, how important they are in your life, and how thankful you are for everything they have done for you. So here are ways to show your true feelings for your mom. And this is not just for mother’s day but all 365 days. If you are living with your mom or if you are not, no matter what, you have to let her know that she means a lot.
1. Begin your day by giving her a warm smile and if you both don’t live together then at least send her a message or call her when you begin your day.
2. Help her in house chores.
3. Ask her about her day
4. At least give her an hour to talk about whatever she wants.
5. Cook her a nice meal, maybe her favorite dish.
6. Bake her a cake.
7. Give her flowers like in a month or two.
8. Take her out for lunch or brunch.
9. Go shopping with her.
10. Be her gossip partner, her best friend.
These are all the littlest ways to show her worth but to her, they are like everything. We would suggest you to start being nice and considerate to her. Ignore if she is being cranky or baseless. Try to cope with her bad mood as better as with her good mood. Keep loving her and see your world turning into a paradise. Because no matter how much we argue with our moms, their one single smile is enough to make our day.
