The whole of the mother's fraternity is extremely skilled at judiciously managing everything from household chores to the all of the affairs related to all the family members. With the increasing awareness about gender equality, women have become quite successful in looking after their career as well as the household affairs.

A mother has the unfathomable power of managing her children, her house as well as her work simultaneously in the most proficient way. Thus, Mother's Day is celebrated every year to honour motherhood. People across the globe celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May and this year it falls on May 14.

The celebration of Mother's Day is said to have begun in the United States during the early 20th century after Anna Jarvis, who is now known as the founder of the Mother's Day holiday in the U.S., campaigned for a special day for mothers considering their sacrifices for the family. The first official Mother's Day is believed to have celebrated it at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.
