Happy Mother’s Day 2017: When is it celebrated in India; history, celebrations and facts you should know

She nurtures her little ones in her womb and devotes all her life to their well being. In return for her selfless love, she expects nothing. Truly, mothers are God’s angels on earth and the greatest teacher of kindness and compassion for all of us, isn’t she?

When was the last time you told your mom how much she means to you? A single day isn’t enough to express how you feel but you can always make it special. Every year, Mother’s Day is observed around the world with much affection and adulation. This year, in India, it’s all set to be observed on Sunday, May 14.



In Greece, honouring motherhood has been linked to the Eastern Orthodox celebration of the presentation of Jesus Christ to the temple. The day is marked on February 2, according to the Julian calendar.


In most Arab countries, the celebrations of Mother’s Day are carried out on March 21, which is the Spring equinox. A few Catholic countries observe it on the Virgin Mary Day, and in Bolivia, Mother’s Day is the date of a battle in which women participated. Moreover, ex-communist countries celebrate International Women’s Day instead of Mother’s Day. In Russia, people still follow the custom or observe both the days as Mother’s Day.

No matter what day may have been adopted by your nation, sharing your sentiments does not need a specific day. Every day can be Mother’s Day!
