Mother's Day is a newly celebrated celebration in the early twentieth century , celebrated in some countries to honor mothers, motherhood and the association of mothers with their children and the impact of mothers on society. This was shown by the desire of Western and European thinkers after they found the children in their communities neglecting their mothers and not fully caring for them. They wanted to make a day a year to remind the children of their mothers. Later, the celebration expanded to be celebrated in many days and in various cities in the world and mostly celebrated in March , April or May .

The history of Mother's Day varies from country to country, for example in the Arab world the first day of spring is March 21 ; in Norway it is celebrated on February 2 ; in Argentina it is on October 3 ; and South Africa celebrates on May 1 . In the United States, the celebration takes place on the second Sunday of May each year.

Mother's Day is an American innovation and does not descend directly under the roof of maternal and maternal celebrations that have occurred everywhere in the world for thousands of years. Like the worship of Greece by Kubili, the Roman feast of Helleria, and the celebration of the Mother's Day by Christians in Europe, the term Mother's Day has become synonymous with these ancient customs.
