That is the call of the mother.” The mother’s love is the fountain that nourishes the children’s hearts. The mother’s voice is the most melodious melody.

Q: What is Mother’s Day in 2018?
A: The Mother’s Day in 2018 is May 13, 2018, the Lunar March 28, Sunday.
The second Sunday of May every year is Mother’s Day, and Mother’s Day in 2018 is May 13, 2018. Mothers usually receive gifts on this day. Carnations are regarded as flowers dedicated to their mothers. Mothers’ flowers in China are squid flowers and they are also called forgetfulness.
In the modern sense, Mother’s Day originated in the United States and was initiated by Ms. Anna Marie Jarvis. She was unmarried for life and stayed with her mother. In 1907, Jarvis wrote to the Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia, requesting a special memorial service for her mother who died the 2nd anniversary of her death. Her mother served this Sunday school in the church. More than 20 years.
In 1908, the church announced that Jarvis’s mother’s bogey day—the second Sunday in May—was Mother’s Day. Jarvis organized a Mother’s Day committee and began mass propaganda calling for the mother’s day as a statutory holiday. In 1910, West Virginia became the first state in the United States to celebrate Mother’s Day.
In 1911, the activities to celebrate Mother’s Day have been carried out very extensively, not only in every state of the United States of America, but also in Canada, Mexico, and South America. In the following years, the upsurge of celebrating the Mother’s Day campaign continued unabated. In 1912, the United States of America established the Mother’s Day International Association.
In May 1913, the House of Representatives of the United States of America unanimously passed a resolution calling on the President and all officials of the Cabinet, the House of Representatives and the Commonwealth Government to wear white dianthus flowers on Mother’s Day. In 1914, the then President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, signed an order formally marking the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day throughout the United States.
