Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May as a special day to honor the mother figure of a family, motherhood, maternal bonds and even mothers' influence on the society.

Mother's Day celebration first began in the early 20th century in the United States. Anna Marie Jarvis is widely considered as the founder of the Mother's Day holiday in the country. However, she was also held responsible for commercialization of the holiday.

Mothers always play a significant role in people's life. From being the caregiver when we were just babies to the most trusted confidante in adult life, mothers are there with their children through thick and thin. As Agatha Christie said: "A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path"
